When the opportunity arises to frame objects of art in a shadow box, our creative and engineering juices engage on a dual path to display the work in a tasteful, balanced setting with strict attention to the structure that will house the work. The first rule of conservation-grade shadowbox framing is:
The accompanying photo follow the construction path of a set of sterling silver antiques that were installed into an especially deep silver-leafed shadowbox. There was no adhesive used! We stitched, and pressure- fitted each object into position. You will see the cup is held in place by using a dowel which has been stained so as to masque the opening into the suede mat. The salt spoon has a narrow, hand-cut slit into which the pin on the backside sits. Then a few stitches are looped around the handle. The ring is held solely by stitches. All three objects can be de-fitted from their mounts with no harm!
Another satisfied customer will now enjoy these antiques for a lifetime thanks to the skills and dedication of our staff at Golden Gull Studios, Inc. Our finished products become tomorrow’s heirlooms!
