Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought two almost identical cabinets of this elaborate Gothic-revival design. The first (not surviving) came from King Louis-Philippe’s collection; this second example was purchased at the Paris Exhibition in 1855 for the Royal Library at Windsor. The bronze figures represent History, Architecture, Sculpture and Numismatics.

Purchased by Prince Albert in 1855
