 The 'Cabinet of Curiosities' is a term which comes from the 17th Century, it was originally a personal collection of things which provoked curiosity and wonder in the viewer.

Such cabinets were also popularly referred to as Wunderkammer - or Cabinet of Wonders......
Items from the Grand Tour nestled with objects from Antiquity and Geological specimens.
They were in a very real sense the founding of our present day Museums.
Here we present an ever changing array of items of wonder for your personal collection.
