Antique Wax Head Moulage – The Glasgow smile

Item ID: 1900 | Category: Antique And Vintage

This is a very macabre looking Antique Wax Moulage showing a wound known as the Glasgow smile, a wound caused by making a cut from the corners of a victim's mouth up to the ears, leaving a scar in the shape of a smile. The act is usually performed with a utility knife or a piece of broken glass, leaving a scar which causes the victim to appear to be smiling broadly. This life-size half head wax model measures 26 x 22cms and is in excellent condition for age.
