Dr. Auzoux’s Historic Full Sized Horse Model

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is one of the largest and rarest of the Dr. Auzoux papier mâché anatomical models. It’s also one of our most ambitious offerings. This prized 1846 first generation handmade model dates to the mid-1800s. I am told that there are almost 200 separate removable parts. It was recently found tucked away in a barn for over 20 years and is fresh to the market. A handful of Auzoux full size horse model are known to exist. Can be found in the scientific collections of museums around the world. This is the only known example that can be found outside of a museum and is considered the Holy Grail for this type of model.
