Definitions for "Shadow Box"
A deep frame which can accommodate 3-dimensional objects. One common use is in Assisted living and Senior Care facilities, where such a frame can be placed outside each resident's door to be filled with personal items. This is useful in helping them find their rooms and in creating conversations with other residents. More elaborate shadow boxes can be fashioned which reflect a particular theme through the use of various memorabilia mounted together in special ways (see our Case Studies under the "about us" section for an example of a quite unique creation.)
A small case, enclosed in glass, built into the wall and used for merchandise display.
a box or deep picture, in which you can display your collectibles
