Wunderkammer & Curiosities

Since the Renaissance, in particular rulers and scholars have always been excited to collect stranger things and started to establish the first cabinets of wonder. If you share this fascination of natural scientific rarities or decorative curiosities you should not miss on our upcoming autumn auction. We have compiled a bizarre smorgasbord of extraordinary objects for you, like a rare lifesize mechanical doll from Spain circa 1900, wax models of tortured hands and feet from a Berlin panopticon as well as a wastebasket in shape of a lion?s head standing on antlers.
