Bakelite phantom, for practising eye operations, by Leiter, Vienna

This face phantom was intended to be used by medical students in order to practise eye operations. Made by Leiter, in Austria, the head is hinged at the base allowing it to be tilted. There are two holes for model eyes to be attached on springs and the centres can be adjusted by turning a screw. Bakelite was an early type of plastic introduced in 1907.
