Miniature Silver Chairs in Frame
We attached the chairs with thin Mylar strips that we threaded through slits we cut in the backing mat. This is nearly invisible and holds each chair securely. The acrylic shelves were actually an L shape that we pushed through 2 narrow slots that were cut into the mat.
This view shows half the chairs in the frame behind Museum Glass.
These chairs are quite small as you can see by the ruler and the finger. The finished framed size was about 14\" x 9\".
Our customer presented us with a challenge. Create an attractive way to display her collection of miniature sterling silver chairs. After weighing many options we chose the black suede background and clear acrylic shelves for support.We chose to use Museum Glass for two reasons. One for the UV protection and the other for the clarity it gives. It is almost invisible. Finally a simple aluminum leaf finish was used to finish the frame. This was custom built to the depth we determined was necessary for the chairs and shelves.
