6" Porcelain Phrenology Head-Phrenology Bust
Very cool vintage steampunk style bust! A porcelain ceramic glazed crackle finish phrenology head by Lorenzo Niles Fowler (1811-1896). This is a definite conversation piece, give it as a gift or treat yourself. Phrenology has an interesting history. I'm sure the science isn't accurate but it was indicative of the time.
A psychological theory or analytical method based on the belief that certain mental faculties and character traits are indicated by the configurations of the skull.
