Good displays will highlight the object’s best points and even help tell the object’s story.
We have created bespoke traditional display cases and display props and mounts in non-emissive, conservation-grade materials including glass, wood, emission-free mdf, plexiglass and polycarbonate.
We like to come up with displays that show objects in new and surprising ways. On the left is a wheel from the ‘Crossley Tender’, the vehicle involved in the Kilmichael Ambush, during Ireland’s War of Independence. It is displayed in a climate-controlled case designed and made by us.
Rather than try to minimise or hide the object’s decay, the rust has been highlighted as an important element of the wheel’s story: After being burned and then left to rust, it was finally rescued and taken to the old Kilmurry museum, where it was stored under sub-optimal conditions. Almost 100 years after the event, this is what remains of the famous ‘Crossley Tender’.
