About

We have travelled all-over the world always on the lookout for early Dr. Auzoux Models. We found this and a smaller model on our last trip to Paris. Most are already in museums and private collections. Examples usually pass from collector to collector via word of mouth. They are an important part of medical history and amazing when you see all the painstaking detail. It's a must have on every collectors list. These models are made from papier mâché that's why few survived. This handmade and highly detailed model is an early Auzoux and very sought after. For a hand-painted paper model of this age most collectors would consider the condition exceptional. It was well taken care of. The body and parts are paper cache and the veins and arteries are silk wrapped wire. I'm always amazed at the painstaking detail that went into each piece.
