Antique real human hand medical specimen
This is a lovely example of a real human hand where the 27 prepared bones have been threaded together to show the articulation. As cord has been used to tie the bones together this would indicate that this example was prepared in the early 20th century as later examples used nylon line.
As you can see from the photos two of the cords have perished over time and have since been replaced with nylon.
An interesting example of an old articulated hand with a nice colour and patination.
