...no doubt the displays are visually interesting - but you might want to use UV glass...once the displays are disassembled, there's liable to be some weird fading where pieces overlapped other pieces...

With the paper items do you use small tacks or a bit of scotch tape

Rip was using Riker Mounts - the only experience I have had is using them for botanical or insect specimens. Behind is a cushiony material that presses against the glass when empty. The specimen is gently pressed against the glass by the cottony material without smushing. The box is kept tightly closed by a set of straight pins the line up matching holes. Whether the fiberfill is acid free and the glass UV protecting--you would have to contact the manufacturer to get that information.

I use a very tiny dab of silicone. May not be the best way but its what I use. if your gentle you can remove/move items and gently rub the silicone off. i absolutely see the concern of the safety of the items , but I don't plan to disassemble these displays anytime soon. I get a thrill daily at looking at them smile
