Genevre. Curio Cabinet. October 04th , 2017.
A curio cabinet can come in all different sizes from wall-mounted, tabletop to floor models. They are predominately a glass cabinet with wood or metal framework. Curio cabinets are usually are horizontal in shape to display collectibles. The sides of these cabinets are normally glass while the back of the cabinet is either glass or mirror material with a different number of shelves for the collectibles to stand on. A curio can have a very plain design or have very intricate designs that really accentuate the piece. A curio will help prevent dust build-up on collectibles. A curio cabinet differs from a display case, in that a display case is usually horizontal to display jewelry that is for sale on a felt bottom while a curio is vertical to show standing items and usually has no bottom lining.
Corner type glass panels are one of my favorites: these are designed to fit securely in a corner, making them unobtrusive and taking up relatively little space in a room. Their biggest drawback is that they dont have much room for bulky items, but they are perfect for displaying small curiosities. Their shapes are rarely just a square. More often, they will have two sides made to fit snugly into a room corner, and the exposed side can be anything from another flat angle (making the cabinet a triangle) or rounded off to maximize room for your displays.
Have you been looking around the room and was surprised that something went missing? A wall curio cabinet might just be the thing you will need if you want to lighten up the room that you are in with a decorative exhibit. Wall curio cabinets are created for exhibiting small collections which you may have, like figurines, medals and other small artifacts. This kind of curio cabinet is created to be put on nay wall in any room that you ant to make a display in. there are a lot of decorative features of this kind of curio that will make it the heart of attraction in any room in your home.
Shelf type glass curio cabinets are usually not made entirely of glass, with heavy frames made from a sturdier material and only the actual shelf space made from glass. They are similar in use to wall mount glass cabinets, but are larger and thus able to take heavier items but consequently being bulkier. One thing about shelf type glass curio cabinets that sets them apart from wall mounted ones is that they often come with a pair of sliding glass panels on the front that can be locked to keep your little toys secure. Realistically speaking, this wont deter a determined burglar, who can simply smash in the glass, but these sliding panels go a long way towards keeping your kids and snoopy relatives from casually pawing your collection.
Glass curio cabinets are a nice way to display those little odds and ends that every good collector picks up. While there are dedicated collectors out there that specialize in one or maybe two types of collections, the vast majority of people tend to collect odds and ends from their daily lives. Dedicated collectors often have specialized methods of preserving and displaying their collections, but for those of us who almost randomly and haphazardly pick up anything for display and collection, glass curio cabinets are one of the most attractive ways to organize our assorted memorabilia.
