Like a cabinet of wonders, the six cases in this gallery contain small, precious decorative objects that were similarly displayed in the Lehman residence, including porcelain, ancient Roman glass, eighteenth-century French glass figurines, and dioramas of religious scenes fashioned from a variety of materials. Among the jewelry on display is an important pocket watch that once belonged to Louis XIV, King of France.
The gallery is crowned by a stained-glass dome that originally formed a skylight in the Lehman home. It may have been comissioned for the Lehman residence, built in 1904.
