Yes, they exist, the hunters for hyped treasures, more than ever. And if someone happens to acquire a particularly rare piece, he not only locks it in his heart, but would like to know if it has been accommodated accordingly. Where do you go with valuable cigars, books, handbags or glass objects? Contemporary showcases, sideboards and dressers are true treasure chambers for lovingly cared-for artefacts. Show or hide? The secret lies in a sophisticated mix of arrangement, presentation and archiving. And, not least, depends on the extent of your own personal collection.
