Vintage medical / dental real human skull

£575.00

When you see this skull close up and hold it in your hands you realise how large a skull this actually is.

It is a vintage medically prepared real human skull that has been used for dental studies. It is still in good condition with the hooks to hold the cranium in place and the springs to articulate the jaw still present.

Some of the teeth have gone missing over the years but the majority of them are still present. The upper left middle incisor has a small chip out of the die but the rest are intact. All the teeth show extensive wear which must have been gained over many years of a rough diet which may have contained small pieces of grit etc. There is also a large cavity in the lower jaw which would have been gained as a result of an abcess.

Overall, this is a very large skull which is still in very good condition.
