Authentic Models - Phrenology HeadRegular price £62.40
This model is an exact replica of the Staffordshire China fine, cracked porcelain originals.
Phrenology is a foreign subject to our modern medical practices but in the Victorian era it was common practice. Each of the 48 faculties of the brain served as a sort of map to a person's innate nature and personality. With such areas as love, intellectuality, energy levels, and morals; doctors believed they could tell everything about a person from mapping out the bumps and oddities of the human skull. Although Phrenologists are no longer in practice this model will serve as a great conversation piece and will look striking on a desk or bookshelf and would make an unusual gift.
