    Large Phrenology Head - Porcelain 13" Tall White porcelain with cobalt blue trim and black lettering. "PHRENOLOGY by L.N. FOWLER" on front. "L.N. FOWLER, Ludgate Circus, London" on left side. "Entered at Stationer's Hall" on right side.

    Text on back says," For thirty years I have studied cranial and living heads form all parts of the world, and have found in every instance that there is a perfect correspondence between the conformation of the healthy skull of an individual and his known characteristics. To make my observations available I have prepared a bust of superior formed and marked the divisions of the organs in accordance with my researches and varied experience. L.N.FOWLER."

    Head is extensively mapped into areas of phrenological importance. Areas include courage, order, love of home, identity, friendship, sociability, sublimity, ideality, intuitive reasoning, and many, many more.

    A real conversation piece. Hand-painted and made one at a time, these are unique and individual. Do not expect perfection and uniformity from one phrenology head to the next. An uneven brush mark here and there are expected and part of its charm. This antique reproduction is what it is, flaws and all. Brown spots in the white porcelain are intentional, as are all other apparent "flaws". If you would buy a pair of jeans that looked like they had not been washed for a month or had holes worn through them, then you understand this concept.

    A great office or den object for any medical professional, or for the collector of esoteric items. Stands 13" tall, 6-1/4" wide, and is 5" deep. Very Impressive.

Member Chamber of Commerce

Olney, IL. Chamber of Commerce

D. Lawless Hardware is located in the small Midwestern town of Olney, Illinois. Surrounded North, East, South and West by Interstate highways, all an hour's drive away (that's 50-60 miles out here in the sticks for you city folks who drive an hour to work), I like to joke that we are "centrally located in the middle of nowhere". We like it here and we think you would too. Olney has great schools, a junior college, a hospital, 2 industrial parks, 3 recreational parks, a good-sized lake for fishing, boating, and an abundant water supply, a small local all-weather airport, and lots of fresh air and room to breath it. Like all small towns, we appreciate all our local industries, but are always actively seeking growth. So, if you or your company is considering new site locations, please check us out.
