Hunterian Restores Plaster Torso from 1930's

Scan from an original catalogue in the Adam,Rouilly archives

The Royal College of Surgeons of England Hunterian Museum has recently undertaken the restoration of an original SOMSO anatomical torso model, supplied by Adam,Rouilly in the 1930’s.

The model has been expertly restored by specialists at the museum and is now on public display at Levy Case exhibition, College entrance hall.

The model was produced by SOMSO Modelle of Coburg, Germany who still supply our entire range of quality anatomical models today. This model designated “K23” would have been produced circa 1936 and separates into 20 parts. It is constructed from plaster and papier-mâché  and mounted on a wooden board – the then industry standard before development in more durable materials used today.

The K23 Male Torso model was a precursor to the current MT69 model we offer, a highly popular torso model with interchangeable genitalia and an open back.

The Hunterian’s restored model is on display from 1 November 2011. For further information, please Click Here
