Dating to the "golden age" of collecting, this exceptional Victorian collector's cabinet houses an impressive array of brass hardware. The roots of Victorian collecting extend back to the 16th-century Wunderkammern, or "cabinet of curiosities," seemingly arbitrary collections of all manner of exotic and unique objects, both natural and manmade. Yet, the Victorians brought order to the age-old tradition, and this collector's cabinet is the perfect manifestation of the Victorians' dual passion for collecting and classification.

Each drawer is meticulously labeled, containing a perfectly arranged, 358-piece assortment of brass hardware. The collection as a whole offers an appealing introduction to the range of decorative styles that prevailed during the Victorian age, from the opulent flourishes of the Rococo to the understated elegance of the Neoclassical. The mahogany cabinet itself is of incredible quality and is the perfect way to exhibit such an impressive collection.
