Pocket Globe: The intricate map gores on a three-inch diameter pocket globe and its case are displayed while protected from dust and handling. Each is mounted on a brass armature that holds it securely, while being easily removable. One armature holds the case open, while the other raises the globe on a simple half meridian and stem. Shown above from different sides, and with a plexiglas lid.
Irregularly Shaped Souvenir: A conforming mold on black base holds a piece of relic wood from the USS Constitution. It can be lifted out of the base to view.
Gavel: For desk or shelf display, the gavel is held at an angle above a round disk simulating a pounding block, giving it the dynamic appearance of being in mid-motion. The gavel rests on two wire rods, and can easily be removed for use. The stands shown here also have hand-stamped metal label plates.
Souvenir Cable: A 19th century souvenir of a four-inch section of the first transatlantic cable “floats” about an inch above the black base on a T-shaped wire support.
