How to Display your Collection

To help eliminate damage and the amount of time spent dusting your collection it is advisable to display items behind glass and away from direct sunlight to ensure the vibrancy of the paint does not fade or degrade over time.

Due to the sheer number of pieces Peter has produced over the years then it is possible to theme collections, especially within the Home Sweet Home range.  For instance kitchen, bathroom, living room, Christmas etc.

Bear collectors may wish to display all the Edward Harrods bears or Monty Bears together for instance.

In terms of display cases, there are many options available from the likes of Argos and Ikea.  The Bertby wall display case from Ikea has been a popular choice amongst collectors.  Sadly no longer available they do however appear on eBay from time to time.

If budget is of concern then Freecycle and Facebook Marketplace are great resources to find both modern and vintage cabinets.  If you like to upcycle then drawers can be used to create wall-hanging shelving units.  

To maximise display space consider the use of acrylic/perspex display risers, again these can be found on eBay.

If you have an extensive collection and you have the space you may wish to have a dedicated collectors’ room full of cabinets or you may wish to display them in every room of your home (good luck getting that past the other half though ;-))

If space is at a premium and you prefer the smaller pieces that Peter created then printer’s trays are a great and affordable option.

However you decide to display your collection, one thing is for sure, you will get hours of pleasure and enjoyment from spotting something new every time you look at your prized pieces.
