Handsome violin shadowbox frame
Framing an instrument in a shadowbox is a fantastic way to preserve its beauty, once it’s retired. We framed this violin in a faux leather shadowbox frame which really sets off the luster and depth of the wooden instrument. The addition of a photo of the musician helps tell the story of the piece. We also tooled the artist’s name into the leather frame at the bottom. We love it!
Have you got an heirloom instrument that is just laying around in its case? This kind of shadowbox frame display for violins, horns, ukuleles, guitars or any number of instruments can be just the ticket to preserve and enjoy them long past their playability.
We frame for life, so the instrument is mounted with museum mounting techniques. No adhesives involved. If someone wanted to take it out and play it, they could. That is the idea of preserving the items you frame, and that is our primary goal – to frame them so that they tell your story and they last lifetimes.

The last violin we framed in a shadobox went into old reclaimed wood. That violin was in, shall we say, much more “rugged” shape and needed a frame that looked just as old and worn as it did.
