Wedding display

A brilliant way to display the keepsakes from your special day. Almost anything can go into the display, the veil, a silk flower, invitation, a garter, jewellery, place cards, confetti, champaign cork, cake topper, and photos naturally. The only limit is what you can collect!

Each display will of course be unique, to be treasured for ever. Imagine inheriting one of these from your grandmother - it is a mini time capsule!

Cutters

The second in the series, a pair of thread cutters. All three box frames in this set are framed in a simple flat, black painted moulding

Cotton Reels

These old wooden cotton reels are the last of the trio. Each reel is individually mounted on to soft white mount board. The different coloured cottons can be seen when viewed from an angle.

Vinyl LP

This Tom O'Dell LP was one of several signed by wedding guests. What a great momento!
The LP is held in place with special mounting clips and offset from the LP sleeve which is mounted in a traditional window mount.
Mount: Soft white.
Frame: White painted, flat profile

Papyrus Painting

This Egyptian painting on papyrus required special handling. The rough edges of the papyrus are part of the charm of the artwork, and so didn't want to be hidden behind a window mount. The papyrus is float mounted which lifts it off the green backing mount. The triple mount of soft white / green / soft white lifts the glass away from the papyrus and gives a neat trim to the whole thing.

Baby Box

This box frame contains various items to bring back precious memories of a baby. Of course, a similar collection could be brought together to remember a wedding, a special holiday or other occasion, or even a loved ones life.
Mount: Beaujolais with snow white shadow mount.
Frame: Painted flat profile.

Box Framing Gallery

Bobbins

This set of 3 industrial bobbins is one of a set of 3 box frames displaying industrial memorabilia. The bobbins are interesting rather than valuable and together with the following two boxes make a good display on a wall.

Medal Display

These medals have been professionally mounted on a display pin, then the collection, along with a photo of the soldier and an inscription mounted and framed.

The 4 mounts, 2 in holly green and 2 in soft white give both the decorative striped effect and some of  the depth to contain the medals.

Mount: Holly green.

Under mount: Soft white.

Frame: Deep rebate walnut veneer.

African Figures

The photograph does not adequately show the three dimensional quality of theses figures. They are carved in wood, designed to be free standing, but are kept safe in this box frame. The triple mount gives added depth. The figures were already frames, but looking somewhat sad, so they were given fresh new mounts and the existing frame cleaned and re-used. New anti-reflective glass was used so the detail of the figures could be clearly seen.

Under mounts: Lupin & beaujolais.

Top mount:  Oyster.

Frame: Existing frame.

Sports shirt

This England rugby shirt has been signed by the whole team and needs to be preserved as well as displayed.

It has been carefully mounted onto mountboard using the team colours and placed in a shadow frame to prevent the fabric of the shirt from touching the glazing.

Ship Plate

This decorative plate has been mounted on pale blue fabric which has been padded with wadding to give the effect of a cushion. The double frame gives it both definition and depth.

Inner frame: Hand painted white, narrow flat profile.

Outer frame: Hand painted dark blue, wide cushion profile.
