Object history note

Note on register:
Two Japanese heads (FEC.LOST99/N/L1.1, FEC.LOST99/N/L1.7), one large and one small, were sent with T.5 and T.6-1921; but they do not belong to any of them and so have not been assigned registered numbers. The statement that they were brought from Japan about 60 years ago was verbally made by the donor (Registered File number 1921/394.)
