Counter high cases and free standing pedestals form the bulk of what is called museum showcases. All are manufactured with two essential components: a base cabinet and a glass top display area. Museum glass cases can vary in size and design. Museums like to reflect a sense of permanence and warmth and a solid wood museum showcase does exactly that. Solid wood glass cases are appreciated for their strength and durability. They can be stained in many different finishes depending on the décor where they will be used. Museum pedestals and counter high showcases may be equipped with some form of lighting such as fluorescent or LED. Their solid wood base cabinet will act basically as furniture to the eyes and touch.
