Porcelain phrenology seal. English, C1850. Height: 3” or 7.5cm approx. Very good condition. The legend or key is largely complete and legible as are the cranial markings. The matrix is uncut. Phrenology seals are scarce but those with gold markings are especially so; blue markings are more commonly found.
