Filter Special Collections 003 Natural History

In this section, I will be devoting to collections of Ethnographic Items and Natural History Items. Some of these items will be from one collection with some added items from on going estates. I felt having these items all together would benefit each item and will make viewing these type of items easier and will of course look good on the same page. 
Each item will be described with region and approx. date of the item. All these items are coming from private collections with as much background from where my client/s got them with approximately when they acquired the item.

There are 9 total records.
