Heres a frame i built for this old 48 star flag for a customer. If i recall correctly it was from her grandfathers funeral so she wanted it to be displayed open. Its walnut, with a 22.5 degree chamfer slanting back to the outside and a beaded inner detail. Really basic but it is closed back permanantly with 3/16’’ hardboard.

-- I know its around here somewhere...

Ah yes, the days of “I like Ike”, poodle skirts and sock hops in the gym.
Why do I suddenly feel so gosh-darned OLD?

I like the fact the display case was kept simple and the case isn’t the display but a woderful accent. Good work.
