Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite an Eye Catcher I first saw the Porcelain Phrenology Head statue on a stage set of The Big Bang Theory. I saw it again used in an info commercial. I decided it would be a great gift for my son who is in the medical insurance business to set on his desk or file cabinet in his office. I like it so much that I think that I am going to order one for my office too. It is quite a conversation piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Check out your lumps and bumps!! This head, of fine porcelain and printing thereupon, speaks well of the 19 Century's far reaching interest in things esoteric and "of the beyond". Phrenology, the art if discerning one's or another's astral characteristics via the shape and topography of the skull, is a science that has been well researched and studied and has yet to be fully discounted as quack medicine. So get one and have fun with yourself and your friends and loved ones. You might be well surprised to find that you learn something central to your Self discovery hitherto unconsidered or unexamined by your otherwise perceptive intelligence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Expected This piece is exactly what I expected. I have placed it on a bookshelf in my library. It fits perfectly into my motif. Think of Henry Higgins' library in "My Fair Lady".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service on an Excellent Product This product is hard to destinguish from originals. The writing is easy to read. The ceramic construction is so durable, I expect to have it for a very long time. It makes a great addition to my desk. Exposure to sunlight has no noticeable effects on coloring or the words. The most remarkable feature was the service from Tuscano. It seemed like no time passed from ordering to delivery and it was so well packed that it appeared that damaging it would be next to impossible. Quality, Selection, and service are all part of the Tuscano experience I had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from another gift It is so interesting, we looked it over and over before I mailed it off to my niece. The best I found online, size and price wise. Was just as I expected. She loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I was very pleased with how great the Phyrenology Head looked. It's a gift for my daughter, she has her Psychology degree and has wanted one but has had difficulty finding one. I also really like how Toscana gives you a quote of how much the shipping will be before they ship it to you. My only complaint is how much duty you have to pay when you ship to Canada, not Toscana's fault. Over all I was extremely pleased!
