Wunderkammer literally means ‘wonder room’ and is a cabinet designed to show off a collection of specimens or curiosities.
Here is Tony writing on his ‘Miniature Treasures’ blog about his latest piece:
“This particular specimen measures around 4.5cm which equates to just under 24inches in 1/12th scale. Most wunderkammer and cabinets of curiosity contained minerals and gemstones in one form or another….
The cabinet itself is constructed from walnut and three real glass panels of 1mm glass…”
You have to admire Tony’s incredible attention to detail, something which can be seen in another project of his, a miniature Cobbler’s Shop which we featured in a previous blog.
He is obviously a miniaturist to keep an eye on.
