Anatomical feet

Plaster casts of a left and right anatomical feet. Both feet show details of musculature, and the heel of the right foot is slightly elevated. On top of each leg is a maker's stamp that reads "J Giusti & Co Makers, St Vincent St, Glasgow". The inward facing edge of each base includes the inscription "J Giusti & Co, Glasgow". These anatomical feet are the only items in the Giusti Plaster Cast Collection to include such an incription, and the presence of both the inscriptions and the maker's stamp suggests that the feet may have been both sculpted by J. Giusti & Co. (likely in the late 19th century) and subsequently reproduced by the company.
