Highly Detailed Early 1800s Wax Dental Model

About

We found this amazing early anatomical model on our last trip to Paris. I have never come across another like it. It's unsigned but may be an important piece. This example is very detailed and high quality. The hair including the eye lashes are real and I believe the teeth are real as well. The dental work could be gold but I'm not sure. My guess on the date would be mid to late 19th century judging by the dental work. The lower teeth and tongue are wax, but the upper dentures sprung to the gilt lower brace are vulcanite with enamel teeth. The bony upper jaw/maxillablack has been replaced with a block of vulcanite, so my guess is that this is a model of a prosthetic jaw and dentures as might be needed following facial injury, perhaps used as a showcase for a maxillo-facial surgeon.
