Suitable items
Taxidermy & Cabinet of Curiosities Submission Guidelines

At Catawiki we want to ensure that the items in our auctions reflect the unique, harder to find objects of value that bidders are looking for.

This is why we have set per category a minimum estimated value a lot should achieve in auction in order to be admitted.

During lot evaluation our in-house Experts carefully review and select admittable items, considering various aspects and product characteristics that determine the quality and influence the value an item is expected to sell for in our auctions.


At Catawiki we auction taxidermy and cabinet of curiosity pieces from all corners of the world.

For our auctions we source and select pieces:

  • Of all kinds, both vintage and antique 
  • That have been more recently prepared 
  • Of any species that are in compliance with CITES regulations
  • That show the best quality craftsmanship
  • That are in good condition
  • That have a minimum lot value of €75

If you need any extra guidance regarding our acceptance criteria, please find the submission guidelines attached below.
