Antiqued Ceramic Phrenology Head
We sell so many things related to and inspired by Phrenology, it was only when a customer asked “do you sell the actual phrenology heads?” we realised our error! So we sourced some! This one is a replica of an original Victorian model.
Phrenology was the process that involved observing and/or feeling the skull to determine an individual's psychological attributes (thank you Wikipedia!). Whilst it's widely accepted as bunkum these days, the imagery and objects it bestowed on us are really quite beautiful! As objet d'art go, these add character and focal points.
Also available in a larger, life size model.
It measures 20(H) x 9(W) x 9(D) cm.
