This Bass and also the other model of a clam are real beauties. They were made by Auzoux. These people from Dr. Auzoux’s workshop in Paris were the best and most famous anatomical model builders of the 19th and early 20th century. It’s getting more and more difficult to find these rare pieces. These two are in very nice condition. Unfortunately someone added an ugly number on it much later. Probably a school porter or a lab assistant. My guess is that the base and stand are not original because it seems to be Panga panga wood. Not commonly used by Auzoux but fortunately it looks very luxurious. Don’t know if we have to blame the school porter for this too.
