“The persistent demand for a powerful, unbreakable anaesthesia syringe, sufficiently large to fill several teeth at one filling, and strong enough to be economical, leads us to offer the new Imperial Syringe.” So boasted the Randall-Faichney Co. in 1907. The inscription on this example reads "THE RANDALL-FAICHNEY CO. BOSTON U.S.A.." The inscription on the cardboard box reads “Imperial / Dental Syringe /... / THE RANDALL-FAICHNEY CO., Inc. / BOSTON, U.S.A.”
