An incredible antique, late 19th century Memento Mori sculpture.

Made from hand carved bovine bone and designed as a miniature human skull, the skull has been fixed together, stained and mounted on an attractive hardwood stand.

The stain is a dark brown stain and this picks out the features nicely.

The skull is complete, objects such as these are hard to come by with many sitting for many years in personal collections.

Memento Mori objects are a reminder for the owner to enjoy life because death is inevitable.

Good used condition overall, no chips or cracks, some old glue residue visible in parts, stand us possibly a later replacement.

Approx measurements:
3.25" height
2.25" diameter at the base
