Antique real human partial medical skull
Here is a nice partial medically prepared skull. Unfortunately, this skull is now missing the cranium. This example was part of a collection from a medical university and it was not unusual for items to become separated.
The skull is a nice example and still has the springs that articulate the jaw. The bone has a nice deep colour and has a good patina which would show that it has had plenty of handling whilst at the university.
The skull still has quite a lot of the teeth although a few the ones that are there have been chipped as they have dried out over the years. Some of the teeth also appear to have been lost pre-mortem.
Judging by the colour, patina and the brass fittings, I would estimate that this is an early 20th Century example.
