French fairing (small china ornament) showing a seated male patient having a tooth extracted in a forceful manner by a practitioner and his assistant (holding the patient's head from behind). The base is marked 'Sans Douleur', meaning painless. These fairing were insights into popular culture in the nineteenth century, often cheeky or comical in their messages.
