Large, lighted custom oak shadow box style hanging display for vintage WWII military coat. This piece is extra large. If I remember right the glass is 30” x 40”. It is about 4 1/2” deep, and the front is hinged and swings open. It has an inset rubber gasket to seal the inside when shut. It is secured with a keyed locking mechanism. And it is lit via a series of very dim low voltage led strips which encircle the interior, and are hidden from view from the outside. It hangs above the owners desk in his home office, and is controlled via wireless remote control button mounted in a desk drawer. The coat belonged to his father, who served in the air corps and caught on dday in France. I’m proud of this project and was honored and humbled to have been trusted with such an important heirloom to this family. The pictures unfortunately don’t really do this one justice imho.
