Here’s a perfect example of a Wundelkammer item! A ‘naturalia’ - which is one of the wonders of nature - taken and brought to be preserved as a collector’s item.
The ‘wunderkammer’ (cabinet of curiosities) is a custom born from the educated classes of the sixteenth century, when under the impetus of Renaissance and Enlightenment, they began to collect extra-ordinary objects.
It was initially started as an extension of the library, and it was linked to the environment in which scholars examined and preserved the objects of their research. As they expanded, they became real rooms with collections of extraordinary objects, very often coming from overseas, to be shown to a close circle of colleagues and friends.
Moving from alchemical workshops and abbey rooms, this habit reached higher levels of society, until it involved kings and queens (famous were Wunderkammers of Rudolf II of Habsburg, Frederick Augustus Prince of Poland, Anna Maria Luisa de 'Medici).
Cabinets of curiosities can also be considered the ancestors of today’s museums, although they lacked the order and classification we are used to.

Display case weight: 1.9 kg

    Response by seller
    Hi Raeolpi, we are still waiting an answer, we still didn't receive neither our money from catawiki or the refund from the shipping company. As soon as we receive a payment we will fully refund you. I hope you understand our situation here in the middle of these payments.
    Anyway we want you to be happy with your purchase, so we want to give you for free another coral beyond the one you received, that you can keep and possibly repair (normally other companies ask to receive the items back).

    Best regards,

    MAG
  • The service I received from the seller was professional, quick and very helpful. I'm really pleased with my purchase and thoroughly recommend the seller to anyone.
