You wore it proudly while you served, and now that it’s not in daily use, why not preserve and display your officer’s sword in a shadowbox frame made by us?
We at the Frame & I are experts at framing military memorabilia, and officer’s swords are no exception! Rich fabrics and elegant frames make the swords really stand out. Create a conversation piece and an heirloom for your family by having us place your sword in a hand crafted shadowbox like the ones pictured below:
Our shadowboxes are made with skill and care! We expertly mount the objects without gluing, taping or otherwise using non-archival methods. Everything is sewn, wired, or mounted by hand, with the least invasive methods possible. You can see in both of these examples that we created brackets for the swords that are covered with the same fabric as the background. Colors are chosen to enhance the sword but also tells the story of who owned it.
We love including the belt and scabbard as well, if you still have it! A well made frame like these substantially help to protect the sword for years to come. Find a place of honor on your wall and display your accomplishments with pride. If you weren’t an officer, but you know one who might appreciate this, come see us! Framing it can be a wonderful gift that will let them know you’re thankful for their service.
