Wax bust of Frederik III. The cabinet of curiosities contained waxworks of several of the members of the royal family. The custom is also found in other royal courts. They were usually made after a life or death mask, but the king’s was modelled by Louis-Augustin le Clerc in Copenhagen in 1751, many years after the king’s death. The two sedan chair-like lockers were made by Dietrich Schäfer in 1751-52.
