"Mahogany butterfly cabinet ex Rothschild Collection 10 glazed drawers
Early 20th century entomologist's cabinet in solid mahogany with 10 drawers, each with drop in mahogany framed glazed, hand made and individually number-stamped lids, turned mahogany handles and lined with papered cork for pinning entomological specimens. Each drawer has fine carpentry ‘camphor cells’.
Formerly used at Natural History Museum, London to house Rothschild/ Cockayne/ Kettlewell collection of British butterflies
A small ivorine plaque attached to door reads 'Rothschild/ Cockayne/ Kettlewell'; this proof of provenance, referencing that it once housed the collections of three of the UK's leading entomologists, increases the cabinet’s resale value should the buyer ever wish to sell. The majority of these came to the Natural History Museum upon the death of Lionel Walter, 2nd Baron Rothschild in 1939, and had formerly housed his vast collection accumulated over a period of 50 years.
Hinged two-panelled mahogany door and lift off mahogany top and plinth (these cabinets were designed to stand singly or, by removing top and plinth, they can be stacked).
Several of these cabinets were sold by the Natural History Museum by auction through Bonhams with a starting price of £750. Several (image attached of one auction result) achieved prices in Bonham's 'Gentlemans' Library' sale exceeding £2000 each. Mahogany of this quality is no longer available, and this cabinet as well as a functional unit, is an investment.
Cabinet can be collected from London SW7 or we can help arrange shipping, or to load it to the buyer's courier. Cabinet will fit in an ordinary car.
Any enquiry contact Max on 07766331806
Dimensions and further details

  *   All drawers are cork lined and papered; they are papered very nicely and have very few pin holes
  *   Drawers have lift off mahogany framed glass lids, tight fitting and light, hand made with individual numbers
  *   Measurements of drawers are 45.5cm, x 40.5cm, x 5.5cm

The dimensions including plinth and top piece of a cabinet are
Height. 2ft 5ins
Depth. 1ft 6.5 ins
Width. 1ft 8ins
Since they can be stacked, and this involves removing the plinths, the total height of a 20-drawer unit of two stacked cabinets is around 4ft 5ins.
We have only a three of these remaining for sale, all in excellent condition. In the past these have been purchased by prestigious private collectors (including the leading presenter of Natural History television, who has a private collection of ethnographic artefacts), as well as museums including Liverpool World Museum and Leeds Museum.
We prefer collection from South Kensington; we can arrange courier to the UK at buyer's expense. We also have associates and suppliers who drive fairly regularly to various parts of the country (Sheffield, Devon etc.) and can carry as a part load for a modest price. Contact Max Barclay [log in to unmask] for further details
Income from the sales of collections furniture is put towards buying drawers for the national insect collections. "
