Love It or Hate It? Porcelain Skull

This very realistic, glazed, ivory porcelain skull ($439) was designed by Bavarian sculptor Franz Ignaz Günther in 1756, well before skulls were cool. It is still produced today by the same Munich-based porcelain manufacturer, Nymphenburg. Given that it was designed as more of a sacred figure than a trendy home accessory, does it appeal to you?

it'd be nice in a study or library room, but the price is a bit much for me.

Love it! My boyfriend and I love Halloween and I've always had an interest in skulls. I also collect spiders and webs.

I don't mind seeing it elsewhere (movies, on stage, Holloween show etc.., but never sitting around in my house as decoration. Because then it would be really tacky.

foxie- I'd love to see this collection of artsy skulls of yours. You should definitely share some photos in the Su Casa group! Papaver- It's definitely great for Hamlet, although perhaps a little pricey for a toy!

I love it, but I won't use it as the center of a room, more like put to the side.
