My customer wanted to have a shadow box made to display her father’s military memorabilia from his service in the Princess Louise Fusiliers.  She had a photo of him in uniform, along with his medal rack, and a patch and buttons from his uniform.

To add more interest to the design, the openings for the buttons were not as deep (3/8”) as the opening for the medal rack (5/8”).  A khaki coloured suede mat from Peterboro Matboards’ Designer Suede collection was chosen to represent the army.   Tru Vue’s Museum glass was chosen for its 99% UV protection and amazing clarity.
