There's no better way to imbibe a bit of history than with this pint glass! A small bit of history notes Dr. Mütter's use and enthusiasm of ethyl ether anesthesia.

Text reads: Dr. Thomas Dent Mütter was a prominent surgeon in Philadelphia in the 19th century and specialized in reconstructive surgery. DrMütter would often converse about new techniques or procedures with other doctors, and the use of ethyl ether anesthesia in surgery was among them. As such, DrMütter was one of the first doctors in Philadelphia to utilize it, alleviating the pain of patients during their procedure.

Pint glasses are hand wash only.
