Vintage Phrenology Ceramic Vintage Busts
The Vintage Pair of Phrenology by LN Fowler Ceramic Busts is a set of two ceramic busts that depict the pseudoscientific practice of phrenology. Phrenology was a popular 19th-century belief that certain areas of the brain were responsible for specific traits and behaviors, and that the shape of the skull could reveal a person's character and mental abilities.
The ceramic busts are crafted in the likeness of the founder of phrenology, Lorenzo Niles Fowler, and his brother Orson Squire Fowler. The vintage design of the busts gives them a unique aesthetic appeal and makes them a great decorative item for collectors, enthusiasts, or anyone interested in the history of pseudoscience.
