    This most interesting little cabinet is shaped like a house and its the only one Ive ever seen like this! The roof opens to gain access into it. It also lifts off the base to get to the lower portion.
    When I purchased this there was a tag with it that said that this cabinet was once owned by Vivian Vance (aka Ethel Mertz) from I Love Lucy show. It was bought from an auction of some of her possessions a number of years ago.

      I like what's in it! Pretty wood and design of this cabinet.

      I think it may have been a terrarium, it has a lead lined bottom but use it as a cabinet for shakers as you can see. :)

      It does look like a little greenhouse. It's very beautiful.

      What a cool cabinet, and the connection to Ethel Mertz makes it a great conversation piece.
