Dr. Auzoux Papiér Mache Horse Hoof Anatomy Model From 1886
This is a horse hoof didactic model by the famed workshop of Frenchman, Dr. Louis Thomas Jérôme Auzoux, and is an original dated 1886, and marked as such on the top label.
This fetlock-area model is complete with all original parts and can be taken fully apart as intended by releasing the various latches and attachment devices. It is in stunning original, unrestored condition with no repairs or repainting done, with only minor flaking and age wear, but is rather unique compared to other Auzoux hoof models we have seen in that this one has an era-appropriate and original-to-the-piece horse shoe mounted to the base, which conveniently acts to stabilize the piece. The horseshoe has a maker's mark that we have not yet deciphered.
