Crafted from ceramic with an antiqued effect, this pair of Phrenology head bookends are covered in topical writing with detailing from L N Fowler, an Englishman who was one of the leading teachers of the phrenology theory during the second half of the 19th century. He also sold textbooks, charts, prints heads and other articles to practicing phrenologists around the world including many in America. The head halves each have foam feet on the bottom to protect whatever surface they’re placed on and the pair make for a lovely gift. These bookends are lightweight so suitable for a couple of paperbacks, not huge heavy tomes!
This lovely pair measure at H21 x W4 x D9cm each
