A Cabinet of Curiosity
Our younger son recently gave me a gift of a cabinet, originally holding pipes, with a dandy image of Sherlock Holmes etched in the glass door.
We already had one almost just like it, but having two is not a problem. I will fill this one with Sherlockian nicknacks, just as I did the other one.
Here's the interesting part: The one we already owed has exactly the same image of Holmes as this one with Big Ben in the background (hard to see here) - but in reverse. In that one, Holmes is in the right corner looking left, even though the door opens the same way (on the right) in both versions.
So this leaves me wondering: Do you have one of these? If so, which way is Holmes looking? And what did you put in it?
