Purchasing Special Cases for Prized Possessions

By Eric Blair Subscribe to RSS | April 5th 2012 | Views:

You have some old family heirlooms that have been handed down from generation to generation. Prized possessions do not belong in some safe or inside the attic. Fabric, old jewelry and even prized pictures need to be encased properly to ensure that when you’re ready to hand them down to your kids, they’ll be kept in good condition. Frames, shadow boxes and specially designed display cases can help protect an item from the destruction left in the wake of dust, air and moisture.

Display Cases for Small Trinkets

Some small trinkets, like old watches, jewelry and pamphlets, should be kept in custom designed display cases to help maintain the material and preserve the original color of the item. You do not have to go out and spend a fortune on one of these small cases, as you can find all kinds of sizes for your particular item. The display case will usually come with a mirror and some sort of protective cover (usually made of wood or plastic) to keep the encased item free from dust and water damage. Of course, higher-grade display cases will help keep out air, but many people may not want to pay the steep price for these types of cases.


You may have a photo dating back a few generations. The black and white image still looks fresh and you want to keep it that way. Instead of framing the picture in traditional, modern frames, you might want to keep it safe in an antique looking wood frame with a bubble convex glass mirror. The frame and mirror will give the photo that antique look you want. The picture will complement the frame and mirror as well, giving you a reason to hang the photo up in your living room to show off to your kids and family members.

Uniforms and Jerseys

Military uniforms and jerseys require a special type of frame. You cannot hang one of these beauties inside of oval picture frames built for a photo. You need a specially built case to handle the shape of the uniform or jersey. For example, shadow box frames make the perfect item to hang an old military uniform or your favorite player’s jersey in. These items should be custom fitted by professionals to help show off the fine curves, sleek stitching and vibrant colors these older fabrics may have. Fabric materials only need to be protected from dust and water, so a basic shadow box case for a jersey or a uniform will do just fine.
