During the Renaissance, wealthy individuals cultivated private collections of artifacts known as cabinets of curiosity. These precursors to modern museums displayed a diverse array of marvelous objects, blurring the lines between fact and fiction. Mythological artifacts mingled with genuine relics, shaping the evolution of dollhouses and modern museums alike.

 

This tiny curio cabinet is packed with history---and secrets. The cabinet itself has been hand painted to suggest several centuries worth of dust. Peer at its many wonders through 3 sides of "dust"-coated windows, or throw open the door to reveal a bounty of mysterious heirlooms. Each item within the cabinet is inspired by a real artifact from history, and has been lovingly handsculpted, handpainted, and hocused pocused into existence by L. Delaney. The curios arrive loose, allowing you to arrange them to your heart's content with the included bit of non-permanent adhesive wax. Display the cabinet in your miniature scene, or display it in your life-size cabinet of curiosity.
