Display Cases for Antique Stores
Individual antiques stores and antiques malls sell a mix of furniture, vintage lamps, statues, collectibles and precious crystal ware. Finding your way through such a combination of items is no easy task. While furniture has its dedicated space, smaller unique items are displayed inside glass display cases. Tall and wide wall display cases
are the most practical displays to show all these authentic items in a distinctive way. All glass display cases will work best. Some of them have a glass top. Others have a wood top canopy with halogen or LED lighting. Display cases for antique stores are built tall with many fully adjustable glass shelves. Tall crystal vases, compact bronze statues, porcelain figurines require each shelf to be adjusted at different heights. Since some of the display cases are up to six feet wide a center metal support need to be installed to hold the glass shelf firmly and safely. Such large wall display cases have lockable sliding doors on the front and a discreet brushed silver framing will hold the glass panels together. Hinged glass doors are not recommended. Since the display cases are over four feet wide each hinged glass door would be too heavy and put excessive pressure on the hinges. It is surprising to see how many antique pieces you end up displaying in a full vision wall display case. Placed alongside the perimeter of the space they will leave more than enough space for the
furniture and large pieces in the center. Two styles and designs are the most common. The simple streamline glass and metal framing models with a laminated cabinet at the bottom are more economical. More classical antique stores will opt for solid wood display cases with various decorative wood moldings and different stain finishes. They
will provide for a warmer feeling that will entice any customer to spend more time in the store. Antiques shopping is a small and enjoyable luxury. It is always an added pleasure to be able to see each item by itself, well preserved, in a clean and well maintained display case.
