Attached is a postcard I recently came across showing an ornate fretwork cabinet celebrating Trafalgar. The card is unposted and the reverse has no further detail of the publisher or location. From it's style I think the card is pre world war one, which would indicate the cabinet may have been produced for the Trafalgar Centenary in 1905.

I don't recall coming across this image before and I was wondering if anyone has any knowledge of the cabinet. Was this just a one off item for a particular exhibition or did a manufacturer produce a number of these? And where is it now? It would be nice to find out more about this mystery object.
