Here  NEW Interview with Stuart Bryce , Set Director for Outlander, from Town and Country

From T&C:

Near the end of Outlander’s season premiere, Jamie gives Claire a medicine box. She’s clearly touched by the gesture, almost awestruck as she opens the various drawers and examines the medicinal oils and 18th-century surgical instruments (which are admittedly a little scary looking).

More after the jump!

Jamie is proud that his wife is a healer—he mentions it frequently—and Claire, a 20th-century woman caught in the 18th century, values having a skill and passion beyond the domestic sphere. His present is a gesture of love and respect. Caitriona Balfe, who plays Claire on the series, even went so far as to call the gift “one of the most touching things Jamie has ever done for Claire.”

Do you like it?” he asks during the first episode. “Jamie, it’s wonderful,” Claire responds. “Where did you find it?”
Jamie then explains that he saw the box while visiting the goldsmith to have a ruby set, but the reality of how that box ended up on the Outlander set is a bit more complicated.

“The medical box was researched extensively. We found references to a type of eighteenth-century, portable chest—a surgeon’s chest. We had three versions made bespoke for the show by a specialist antique company, Wetton and Grosch,” says Stuart Bryce, the set decorator for the show. “It is one hundred percent period accurate.”
