  47.  A c. 1880 classical head antique ophthalmophantome that was made by George Pilling and Son, Philadelphia.  It is signed by Pilling twice on the cast iron base and on each porte-oeil (eye carrier).  The mask phantom was invented ca. 1827 by Dr. Albert Sachs (1803-1835), an ophthalmologist practicing in Berlin, and it was used to teach ophthalmic surgery with practice upon cadaver's eyes or pig's eyes (similar in size to the human eye and readily available).  The orbs are held in place by spring-loaded concave disks that push them against a ring of prongs.  Both of these removable sockets are present.  The set screw at the center of the throat allows the head to be tilted back to various positions.  The Augustan style bust is the most desirable of the various types of antique ophthalmo-phantomes.  John Reynders & Co., New York, offered and illustrated this ophthalmophantome in their catalogue of the 1880s.
