An auction of objects once found in, on or around a cabinet.

A private Scottish Highlands collection of natural history headlines this auction with plenty of head-turning lots. Rare meteorites and ancient fossils bookend spectacular mineral specimens alongside an impressive library featuring beautifully detailed botanical treatises from the 18th and 19th centuries with works rarely seen for sale among them. A strong selection of taxidermy also features alongside a wide range of curated curios.

The auction will be, in part, exhibited at McTear's stand within The GWCT Scottish Game Fair this July.
