Antique real human medical half skeleton in box

£750.00

This is a nice skeleton although I don't think that this is the original box.

The skeleton is in good condition as you can see from the photos although the foot bones have become separated and some have since got lost. The hand bones are all present and have been re-strung. Overall all the bones are in good condition.

The skull has the original springs to articulate the jaw and hooks to hold the cranium in place. Quite a few of the teeth, particularly at the front have also gone missing over the years. The skull has a good colour and patina which would indicate that it has had quite a bit of use and handling.

The box might be a later addition as it is unlike the boxes that the skeletons were usually supplied in. It is pretty substantial construction though and would have been very useful for protecting the bones.
