Rare Specimens & Oddities


                A specimen or oddity is an instant subject of conversation, intrigue, and a stately reminder of the regal and fascinating Cabinets of Curiosity of Renaissance Europe. Curiosity Cabinets (also known as” Wunderkammer,” amongst other names) were essentially grand rooms within the homes of members of the higher class, and showcased everything within natural history, from fossils, to taxidermy, skeletons, skulls, minerals, and artifacts alike. These magnificent rooms were the precursors of the modern day natural history museums that we have today. Bring a sense of old world class to your home with a rare natural history specimen or oddity, brought to you by Darwin and Wallace™.
