Vintage real human articulated medical foot


This is a nice example of a medically prepared real human foot. The bones have all been strung together with nylon line to show the articulation. The whole foot has also had a coat of varnish at some stage to help prevent the bones becoming friable and crumbling. The bones all appear to be in excellent condition and all present. It looks like the middle and distal phalax of the small toe have fused and this is common.

I would estimate that these were prepared mid-20th Century. There is also a black mark on the talus which would have been from its use as a medical specimen.
