Morticians Embalming Skull

Item ID: 1406 | Category: Medical

This is a rather macabre item of mortuary equipment used for the reconstruction of missing facial features by an embalmer. When a body was involved in an accident it was the responsibility of the funeral home not only to embalm & prepare the body but also to perform complex reconstruction to disguise damage. This very rare metal mortuary face comes complete with a partial reconstruction including an eye & its original case. The top to the case is loose & acts as a mounting block for the head which can be attached using 2 screws. Morbid Medical Curiosity at its best!
