This is “The Monkey Cabinet.” I thought it would be fun to share.

See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil

My Dad has been collecting “See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil” monkeys for as long as I can remember. It used to be a family activity, so the collection is pretty special to me.

He’s got monkeys that are toothpick holders, perfume bottles, and banks.

Some are very fine antiques or considered fine art pieces, and others are only valuable to the collection.

There was a while when he collected other animals besides monkeys, but that quickly got out of control.

I don’t remember where each and every one was purchased, but there are a few that have stories attached.

It’s a neat collection, and you can definitely find a few monkeys in my sister’s and my homes.
