How to display crystal glassware and china?
I am finally ready to display my motherÂs engraved crystal water and wine glasses and china. (It only took me 10 years to find a place for them, but thatÂs another story...) They are almost 60 years old, so not antique, just getting there.
Up to this point my 2 china cabinets have ended up storing a stack of plates and a row of glasses. Now I want to "display" them rather than "store" them. But what looks good?
There are no plate rails but I found plate holders that hold them upright. Put out a place setting? But that will look like a store display, wonÂt it? Choose the prettiest, most distinctive pieces and only display those? Set them at various heights? If so, on what? (Is there such a thing as a china pedestal???)
The glasses are the most beautiful, the engraving is amazing. But you donÂt put a row of 12 glasses lined up, do you? There must be a more creative way.
