I've been poking around on teh ebay, but just in case anyone here has leads, actually has one of these things they want to get rid of, or happens to be scouring antique shops/estate sales and finds something, there are two things I have been looking for for an art project. (These things exist on ebay, but I just haven't found anything perfect that hasn't seemed just a little too spendy.)

Anyway, I'm looking for:

A phrenology head or bust about the size of a mannequin head. A little bit smaller would be okay too.
Something kind of like this:
http://www.productforyou.com/product/realistic_looking_dr_willarton_phrenology_head/
or this:
http://rootsemporium.co.uk/miscellaneous/phrenologyhead.html

I'd be drilling into it, so something hollow would probably be best.

A candlestick phone. It does not need to be in working order. The plainer the better- mostly I'm not interested in it having any numbers or a rotary on the base.
Something like this:

I'm not super picky about authenticity, so while it'd be awesome if they were actually both antique, I'm not thinking I'll actually find them and still be thrifty about it. Especially the phrenology head. If they are aged/beat-up/non-shiny, that is great.

Beep.
