Real Beauchene Skull - Medical school teaching display.

Sorry, this item from Radio Guy has been sold.

A Beauchene Skull, also known as an exploded skull, is a disarticulated human skull that has been painstakingly reassembled on a stand with jointed, movable supports that allows for the moving and studying of the skull as a whole or each piece individually. In the mid-1800s French anatomist Claude Beauchene developed this method to display the anatomy of the head. Beauchene would meticulously clean a skull, separate its bones, and mount them on a stand designed to exhibit them at once individually and in context. This is a highly decorative and detailed example. It's an early skull that has been mounted in the Victorian style with with a beautiful turned wood base and brass fittings. The fittings include tilts, slides and scissor mounts to move the skull parts. This item is an anatomical display and medical teaching aid for educational purposes only.
