Custom Framed Military Telegram, photo and Purple heart
A telegram from 1944. We are glad that this soldier made it home.

Day 4 of “Vintage is Now” features an original telegram, military photo and Purple Heart medal. The telegram was a way of communication before emails and social media. A wartime telegram often brought bad news and was dreaded. We are glad that this soldier recovered and came home from WWII to make a beautiful family.

This project uses an elegant Larson Juhl solid hardwood Cranbrook frame. It’s made in the USA and is classic and timeless.  We created this project years ago and the simple design is still fresh.   A engraved brass nameplate helps tell the rest of the story. This is a piece that will be handed down for generations. Thanks to all who serve in our Military.
