Plastic Surgeon’s Teaching Model

 This is a delicate and early Spelter or Pot Metal full skull casting. The full kit includes sample eye, nose and mouth models cast in lead. These teaching models were used as a practice dummy for morticians or plastic surgeons. Every time I look at this display I can’t help but think of the Surrealist master Salvador Dali.

  This is one of the objects from the Radio Guy collection that inspired Dennis Manarchy's Award winning series and book "METAL"
