A pair of phrenological busts, glazed earthenware, British, 1901-1970

Unusually large, glazed phrenological bust displaying 35 named organs on one side and their four collective groupings on the other. Possibly by Frederick Bridges (d. 1883) who ran The School of Practical Phrenological and Physiology (1858-1883) in Liverpool, England and who, in 1877, was producing a bust of identical proportions but with his signature and date and number of the bust, this bust has no such identification.
