Real 1940's Beauchêne skull (Exploded Skull)

A Beauchêne skull (or exploded skull ) is a type of anatomical preparation for which the bones are separated and mounted in anatomical position, but spaced out, so that it looks like the bones are suspended in mid-air.  The Beauchêne skull was a common teaching aid in anatomy classes because it enables students to view bones in context and pull them out for closer examination. 

This 1940s example is in perfect condition with complete and exposed dental. The details include surgical steel fixtures and a custom hand-spun mahogany base w/ heavy glass dome. Also includes origional black steel base. 

Original antique Beauchêne skulls are incredibly rare in complete and good condition. This piece would be a standout example in any collection.
