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.
Where you put the curio inside your house is also a determining factor to what you should put inside it. For example, a cabinet curio which will serve as the focal point of your living room can hold your precious collections of porcelain and ceramics. It can also serve to house your souvenir collection of items which you got from the different countries youve visited. If you put the curio cabinet in the kitchen, you can use its shelves to display wines and wine glasses, or your finest kitchen ware collection. If it is a miniature curio and is located in your room, you can put your jewelry inside it. If it is a hanging curio in your library, you can use it to hold your book and magazine collections, or if it is in your fun room, you can display your DVD collections or toy collections in it.
