Ormazd. Curio Cabinet. October 09th , 2017.
Curio cabinets have become a delight in themselves as they showcase your favorite things and mementos to friends and family, keep all your dear treasures in one place to admire them in wonderment everyday, or protect your growing collection of porcelain dolls from your 5-year old. Curio cabinets started as places to keep curios - defined in the dictionary as curious or unusual objects of art or knickknacks and whatnots that are perhaps worthy of collecting because of their oddity. This definition could, of course, include silver spoons from Alaska, all assortments of wedding and christening favors, crystals, face masks from Africa and possibly even shrunken heads from the Amazons of Ecuador and Peru.
There are different versions of these kind of cabinets; some can be mounted on wall while others can store many large items. This type of curio is well crafted with wood or metal trim on the sides or back with glasses on the rest of the way around. Using a glass cabinet will allow you to make your objects viewable to your guests, friends and even to your family members, regardless of which side of the cabinet they may be on. This curio cabinet contains no wood post that blocks the view of the artwork that is stored or kept inside of it.
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.
The word "curios" is derived from the word "curiosity" and it serves as a good description for this furniture type. Curio cabinets are crafted with glass doors and, sometimes, glass sides. They are designed to show up to three sides of the objects put in them. It is an artful piece of furniture designed to exhibit, highlight and boost artful objects. Curio cabinets are a very useful place to keep all your dear treasures in one place without the fear of loosing them. It has a pleasure in itself as it showcases your favorite things and souvenirs to friends and family. However, they can be used for several other purposes. These cabinets can also have the honor to hold your family heirlooms - such as, grandmas silver comb and grandpas gold pen.
Curio cabinets are made from veneers and various hardwoods and can be found in almost any wood finish you can imagine. No matter what wood type you choose, you can always achieve a finish that will produce a color that matches your household decor. There are both plain and fancy curio cabinets. Curios are not always rectangular boxes and can be found in many designs featuring sweeping curves, arches and flat backs. Curio cabinets can be wall-mounted cabinets, wood corner cases, free standing counter top cabinets, exquisitely lighted cabinets, or other large curio cabinets.
