Victorian science was fascinated with the human brain. Phrenology was one of the fanciful results of highly creative research. Moods, data storage, creativity, and sensitivity were among the 'senses' that were neatly catalogued and given a defined location. A doctor's desk was not complete without a model of a head depicting the areas associated with each of the senses. An inkwell was at hand, as prescriptions were still written with a stylus and a nib. This porcelain inkwell is an exact replica of an antique phrenology head inkwell.
Inkwell measures 3.3 x 2.9 x 5.7 inches
