A curio cabinet can come in all different sizes from wall-mounted, tabletop to floor models. They are predominately glass cabinets with wood or metal framework; Curio cabinets are usually horizontal in shape to display collectibles. The sides of these cabinets are normally glass, while the back of the cabinet is either glass or mirror material with different shelves for the collectibles.
A curio can have a very plain design or have very intricate designs that really accentuate the piece. A curio will help prevent dust build-up on collectibles. A curio cabinet differs from a display case in that a display case is usually horizontal to display jewelry that is for sale on a felt bottom. In contrast, a curio is vertical to show standing items and usually has no bottom lining.
The wall-mounted curio cabinet is usually the smallest, with an open front with multiple shelves for small collectibles. This curio is normally a square or diagonal design. These cabinets are usually made of wood with multiple display shelves, and both attach to the wall. These cabinets normally do not have the intricate design that may appear in tabletop or floor model curios. Although, they still make for very attractive displays of your collectibles.
A tabletop cabinet will be considerably smaller than floor curio cabinets. They normally have one to two shelves for display items and one or two doors in the front of glass, wood, or metal. Tabletop models will hold only a few items, or if you take out the shelves, the curio can be used as a doll display case. They can range in size from eight to sixteen inches wide, six to eight inches deep, to eighteen to twenty-eight inches high.
