Paris Taxidermy Curiosity Shop

Depuis 1831

… One year ago, a terrible fire devastated the cabinet of curiosities, the room of entomology and most of the historical collections. But Deyrolle is rebuilt gradually and the first rooms are completely restored. Today, the shop is even more beautiful than ever, with many mammals of big sizes, splendid naturalized birds and natural curiosities as beautiful as astonishing.

It was on the fourteenth of February, 1627, that the extravagant

and splendid spectacle, le combat a la barriere, took place in

Nancy, seat of the Dukes of Lorraine…The charm of this occasion has

survived over three hundred years, not because of the splendor of its

setting or the nobility of its principals but, rather, because the account

of it was “enrichy des figures du sieur Jacques Callot”

Did some proud father tuck this in his

pocket to carry his snuff…?

It was during the 18th century when snuff taking rose in popularity and came into widespread use throughout the world and throughout the social classes. The sound of sneezing was common in many a European snuff parlor and snuff boxes became the latest fashion accessory.

Snuffboxes in the 18th century were highly decorated, often made of precious metals and emblazened with jewels. This latest fashion accessory was often changed every day to match the costumes of their owners and would be exchanged as gifts offered as diplomatic or military presents.

The pelerine grew wider as it spread over the increasing shoulder line of gigot sleeves. It accentuated the shoulder width and made the waist of the 1830s look very small and was a popular feature of dress in the Romantic period.
