Life Saving Ring

Posted November 10, 2014

Every item that we frame at Peterson Picture Co. has intense personal meaning for our customers. Our job is to handle and preserve these items with dignity so that wherever they are displayed they evoke a sense of identity. Usually we get pieces of fine art or a prized tapestry. However, this week we had the honor of framing a customer’s life preserver!

Our customer was lost at sea after being thrown overboard. After spending 24 adrift in the ocean, he was rescued by a team of shipmates. He had them sign the life preserver they used to pull him out which he brought to us for preserving! We used a shadow box to construct an enclosure for the ring. It is protected from dust and other irritants which can damage objects over time. All of our shadow boxes are custom made to fit the piece that you bring in and to highlight the object’s unique meaning.




We used a pulley system with nautical ropes and knots to evoke a sense of being at sea, in addition to suspending the life preserver within the box!


The shipmates signed and wrote well wishes on the ring and the accompanying poster.


May the wind always be in your sails,

Peterson Picture
