Sports Memorabilia looks amazing framed. Whether it be a sports shirt, ball, bat, boxing glove, photos, tickets, or a combination of items, we can help preserve your sporting memories with our conservation framing.
The Team GB Hockey Team had some of their Olympic 2012 shirts framed in deep black shadow boxes with a matching mount board backing. Tickets were added to the football shirt below, making it a more personal frame. Each frame has a deep rebate in order to keep the shirt away from the glass. Conservation materials are used throughout. Anti-reflective Artglass can be used which will help preserve your items as well as minimising any reflection.
Cricket bats are a popular item to be framed. Below left is a signed Lancashire Cricket Bat, where we hand painted the frame matching the team colours. Below right is a signed 1936 Ashes bat which we framed in a natural wood frame. Both have an acrylic box on the front, allowing the depth required and better view of the objects.
Attached to a montage of photographs and programmes, this boxing glove is framed with a domed acrylic front allowing the depth needed. Other smaller items are included. All items are hand sewn to the backing. A plain black frame was used.
Boxing Glove with photographs & memorabilia
Other items, like balls and caps, which are too wide/deep for a conventional frame can be encased in an acrylic box which can be on a plinth made of a moulding of your choice.
Medals, tickets, programmes and many more items can be framed either seperately or all together.
Larger items such as Racing Silks (below right) and Schumacher Racing Suit (left) are examples of other sporting items we have recently framed. Again, all conservation materials were used and garments were sewn to the back board, framed with deep rebate frames to keep the garments away from the glass and using Anti-Reflective Artglass to reduce reflections and preserve items.
Dragon Boat Race Medals – our customer wanted to be able to see both sides of the medals so we used olive wood coin display holders to keep them in place and created a double glazed box frame.
