Phrenology Head

 

Phrenology was considered sound science during Victorian times and charts and models such as these were used to explain and understand the science.  The brain was considered to be an "organ of the mind" with character traits and health concerns identified and associated with specific parts of the brain.  American brothers Lorenzo and Orson Fowler were leading phrenologists of their time and ran the publishing house Fowlers & Wells in New York City, focusing on publications dealing with phrenology.  Lorenzo spent much of his time studying in London, where he established L. N. Fowler & Co., most famous for the phrenology head made of china that they produced.  This is an exact replica of the L. N. Fowler & Co. model, made of Staffordshire china, complete with a crackled finish that adds to the authentic look and feel.  Makes a great conversation piece.  An ideal gift for anyone interested in medical history.
