Bantam Midget, Silver
The 1930s saw the rise of hand built model racecars, known as spindizzies or tether cars. Miniature racecars built by hobbyists zoomed around banked wooden tracks at speeds approaching 150 miles per hour. Resembling the full-size racers of their day, several spindizzies competed at once, tethered by cables to a central pole. Powered by model airplane engines, spindizzies raced against the clock. Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, these miniature racecars were beyond toys; they were pieces of art representative of the best pioneering technology of the era. Constructed using original blueprints our Bantam Midget model resembles the original down to the smallest detail. One look and you’ll be ready to join the competition.
Colorful Phrenology Head
Phrenology, termed “the only true science of mind” in its day, was a generally accepted pseudo-science of the 19th century. Phrenology was believed to be the next step in the evolution of the four humors. It taught that a person’s physiognomy showed moral, intellectual, and social development. It was also used to predict the future, assess a suitor, and evaluate job applications. More than a century later phrenology enjoys a revival of sorts. As the science of body features, it teaches that by observing someone’s hands, feet, and face, their mind and soul can be revealed.
All aspects of character, from perception to benevolence, were located in certain regions in the brain. An iconic tool of the medical profession, these faculties were rendered on a shaped, porcelain head. Such busts were popular in doctor’s offices and Victorian libraries. The Phrenology Head was as much a symbol of 19th century science as a world globe in the workshop of a 16th century cartographer or an armillary in an astronomer’s study.
Choose between our two distinct Phrenology Heads.
The authentic, exact replica shows all 48 faculties drawn with precision. Historic science at your fingertips…
Our modern version displays attributes of character in cool, vibrant colors, and appeals to a natural curiosity about the mind and consciousness. Both are interesting as historical documents, and fascinate in their own way as highly decorative accessories. Both easily double as enigmatic and practical bookends.
Marconi Spotlight II
Our spotlight dates back to the 1930s and was most likely designed for use on a French battleship. By moving slatted louvers a signalman sent messages in visual Morse that could be read by trained men in the distance. Morse code uses long and short signals and combinations to convey a message. The elements making up the code were formed by sounds, marks and light pulses of varying length. Created in the 1840s, Morse code was in use for more than a century and a half. The famous S.O.S. sent by ships in distress (as on the Titanic) was sent by Morse code. Our bold and striking new nickel and steel tripod stand is height adjustable. The lamp head moves up and down with the help of an intricate gear and cogwheel system.
