Sheriff’s deputies retirement

These shadow boxes were retirement gifts  for deputy sheriffs. One deputy had spent time working in two neighboring counties and so he had two career badges. Although shadow boxes can contain lots of items, sometimes they are just very simple and straightforward. These also show the two different kinds of engraved plates available. One is a plain gold color (or silver) with black text and the other is a fancier one. It is black with gold text and a gold border. We adhere them to an acrylic base which lifts them off the back of the box giving more dimension and visual interest. The box on the left is walnut, the other has a light oak frame.
