15.5" high x 9" wide x 12.5" deep
This head has been vetted as authentic.
The tongue is a separate piece, nailed in place. Four teeth are missing. The front three inches of the projection on top was broken off at some point and nailed back on (see 2nd & 3rd pictures above) ; it has now been stabilized.
