An exceptional French dermatological wax model, representing the damages of the syphilis on the male genitalia.
Wax model most likely by “Les fils d’Emile Deyrolle, Paris” (for a similarity with another model from the same collection, but this one doesn’t have the label), in a wooden case with glass.
Most likely from 1919 (a /19 behind the box), reporting a French handwritten description: “Chancre de la verge e des bourses de syphilides pigmentosos(?) – Modele 1/19)””
In perfect condition, dimensions of the case: 54,5 x 44,5 x 13 cm

Established in 2005 in Italy, Nautilus tries to be a modern wunderkammer, where antique science and natural history meet, inspiring wonder. I mainly love antique scientific and medical instruments, but my interest extends to unusual or rare technologies and natural history.
