Antique human teaching skulls in great condition are hard to find, and this one is a beauty! Other than missing a few teeth (which is to be expected considering its age), it is in perfect condition. Great colour, beautiful sutures, medial orbits in tact. Sprung mandible and cut cranium with hook clasps all in perfect order.
The collector I obtained it from had received it from an artist who had been housing it in their studio for many years, and you can see why, it's perfectly proportioned.
Please note: Only the bone is for sale, not the styling props :)
All our human bones are antique (over 100yr old) medical teaching specimens sourced from a reputable London collector.
We believe in learning from the beauty of human anatomy for scientific and artistic purposes and feel privileged to make this small collection available to our customers.
However, we do not take this transaction lightly, and for that reason are only shipping to customers in the UK.
All human remains should be treated with respect and dignity and we ask that this is continued.
If you are considering purchasing, we ask that you read the UK legislation below to familiarise yourself with it;
These bones can be legally privately owned within the UK. The consent requirements do not apply to the display of human remains from people who died more than 100 years ago.
The legal requirements of the Human Tissue act 2004 and the guidance given in this Code do not apply in the case of bodies or relevant material where: a) the person died before the HT Act came into force on 1 September 2006; and b) at least 100 years have elapsed since the date of the person’s death.
