Mid-Century Modern Anatomical Eye Model Made in Western Germany



Sculptural 1960s anatomical human eye teaching model made by Somso Western Germany. This beautiful piece is in great vintage condition without any damage. A very decorative conversation piece. Manufacturing the original Somso models requires a great degree of specialized and mainly manual work. Modern technology and traditional manual work form a rare symbiosis. Somso models therefore have the character of a unique single piece.
