Cartridge Display Boards

Be it a pyramid of oranges at the greengrocer’s, a Whitman Sampler, a strand of graduated pearls, or even data on a spreadsheet, there is something supremely satisfying and comforting about an orderly arrangement. Its appeal is so primal and basic, that even ammo, when carefully mounted and displayed, is quite beautiful.

UK companies Eley, founded in 1820, and Kynoch, established in 1862, eventually became part of Nobel Industries. This board is c. 1910
