This artifact was acquired from the Science Museum, London, England, in 1973.
In Fabre de Lagrange’s 1872 catalogue, this model was labelled as an “Intersection of two cylinders, one piercing the other so as to give two separate loops of intersection.”
In 1872, in keeping with the object-based teaching trend in mathematics, the South Kensington Museum in London, England, commissioned Fabre de Lagrange of Paris to make over 45 mathematical models for its Education Collection.
