  • Memorabilia - How to Display it?

    Someone here might have experience with this...but I am trying to find the best way to display some silk sashes my grandfather got while serving in China-Burma-India theatre in WW2.

    The first thing that comes to mind is a hefty glass covered picture frame, but if you guys have any other suggestions I would love to hear them.

    Here is a pic of what I am talking about...

    How about a glass-topped table instead of a picture? It would be an interesting conversation piece if it was done well.

    Just a thought.

      Definitely something with glass. Like Doc said a table or a wall piece?

        Yeah, a tabletop might be kind of cool.

          If I might add something to what has been said. have table with your items placed in it and glass on top. Either beside the item or on a cardboard square, have a typed memo about what each piece represents. Hope this helps sir.

            The bookshelves in my library are six shelves tall (1.9 meters high total and about 2 feet wide). I only put books on 5 shelves and leave one for memorabilia, all the way around the room, at the same level. They're grouped in, well, groups. One for example is my Parents, one is WBTS items, one is old friends. There are a mixture of photos and "3d items". It provides a nice horizontal continuity to counter the vertical pattern of the book shelves, and is usually the first thing people see when they enter my library.

            You may want to consider something like that.
