Antique partial real human medical skeleton, Adam Rouilly 2.

£800.00

The Adam Rouilly company started supplying skeletons and skulls to the medical profession in the 20th century and continued until the mid 1970's since when they now just supply synthetic anatomical models. 

This example is an early specimen, probably for the very early 20th Century and is in the original box, complete with stamped lid. 

Within the box is a half human skeleton including the spine, ribs, sternum, clavicle, scapula, half pelvis, femur, patella, tibia, fibula, bones of the foot, humerus, radius, ulna, and bones of the hand. Overall the condition of the skeletal parts is good. Some of the original waxed cord that was used to string the hand and foot bones together had perished and has been replaced with nylon line although much of the original cord is still present. 

The femur is also interesting as it has been sectioned in places which are held together with nuts and bolts. There are also a few of the vertebrae missing. There are 11 ribs present and rib1 shows some sort of growth (possibly as a result of damage). 

The skull still has most of the teeth present although some of the front ones have gone. The cranium is removable and the jaw is articulated on springs. These are the original old brass hooks and springs.
