Topic tags/keywords: question design wall mount

I’m looking for some help from the Lumberjocks community. I’ve inherited a ceremonial Passover meal seder plate from my mother last year. It is 17 1/2” in diameter with six 4” removable bowls. Here's the only link I could find and the photo is “zoomable” if you want to get a good look at it.

I want to hang it on the wall along with the small bowls as it’s too big for any of our cabinets and believe it or not, we currently have it on the floor of a back-hall closet that gets virtually no traffic or use. Not the best place for it.

Our home is a blend of traditional and contemporary and woods that are currently being used are black walnut, canary wood, maple/walnut combo, and a stained poplar/spruce piece. Furniture ranges from leather recliners and sofas to glass-topped dining table to sectional sofas. We run the whole gamut.

I’ve been stumped so any ideas would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Do you want to have it displayed with the bowls in place on the plate or can they be mounted around or below it somehow?

Jaidee – thanks for coming by. No, not have the bowls in place on the plate but either around or below. One thought was a large shadow box of some sort but that would most likely be too large of an object on the wall. I’m trying not to have this overshadow the room itself.

Perhaps having the plate framed behind glass with a shallow shelf at the bottom to hold the bowls displayed in open air? Makes the plate the focus to draw in the curious to then examine the bowls. Just one thought, I’ll get back if I have any others.
