A while back I posted a portion of my collection that was restricted to one large case, and two smaller ones. I have since added a second large case, and am using a small vintage case for tie bars and timepieces. The other case (not pictured) is being used to hold singletons and broken pieces only.
Due to the recent spree that I have been on lately, my collection outgrew the single large case that it was in. Expanding to two showcases enabled me to properly display the links with more room and with the wrap arounds (my personal favorites) displayed together with the others. The first case, on the left, has all my personal favorites and the wrap arounds. The next large showcase has the pieces that have matching tie bars and/or studs, as well as others. The last two photos show my tie bar collection, two commonly worm timepieces, tie tacks, and silk knot links.
With birthday and Christmas coming up (as well as obligatory swap meet visit this weekend), I anticipate the collection to grow more, but fortunately, after cramming most of these into a single case, I know that there is plenty of room to spare in these showcases.
The cases themselves were a great eBay find, direct from china. Hinged, glass top case with 100 ring slots in black velvet. Most cufflink pairs fit in one slot, so 200 or less pairs fit quite easily.
If there are any particular pairs that you see posted in my general collection that you would like to see individually posted (with applicable backstory, if available), please let me know and I will do that. I have been posting selective favorites, as I did not want to overdo my posting, but if there are certain ones that people would like to see posted with more detail, please let me know!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
