I am looking to display some ad glass pieces for my room. Looking for any ideas in displaying them. My only idea right now is to build a box with rear lighting. Is that pretty much it or does any body have any pictures or ideas I could follow. I thank everybody and anybody that could pass on their ideas. Thanks Ron

I have mine displayed with my globes in barn wood for a rustic look. If you have globes.

I've never done it, but I thought it would be cool to build or buy a large light box (maybe 3' x 3', white translucent sheet with back lighting) and then frame out a piece of glass out maybe 3/32" or so out from the light box, and then just stack the ad glass inside, between the white sheet and the glass. Be a colleague of ad glasses that light up.
