Perfect vintage real human medically prepared disarticulated skull in original box
This is an exceptionally good example of a disarticulated skull. A complete disarticulated skull in a purpose made box supplied by Down Bros. of London.
The skull has been very well prepared and is complete as you can see from the photographs. The smaller nasal bones etc are also all in perfect condition which is unusual due to their very delicate nature. The bones are all in excellent condition as can be seen from the photos. The skull would have been of a young adult as the bones are quite fine, the teeth do not exhibit much wear although all the teeth have emerged. All the teeth are present and in great condition.
From the box, I would estimate that this is a mid 20th Century example. The box itself is in excellent condition complete. Inside the lid is the label saying "Prepared in France. Down Bros. Ltd - Surgical Instrument Manufacturers" together with their address in London. The box separates into two sections and a lid and measures a total of 21 cm high and 18 cm diameter.
