Offering High Security for Precious Treasure

26/07/2012

A Roman silver dish is returning to Suffolk for the first time since its discovery in 1942. The British Museum in London is loaning the Mildenhall Great Dish to Ipswich’s Christchurch Mansion, from 26 July until 31 October.

The 34-piece Mildenhall silver collection is in the British Museum’s top 10 list of British treasures, and a replica set of the collection has been permanently on display at Mildenhall Museum since 2001.

The Mildenhall Treasure is believed to date from the 4th Century; and the solid silver dish, which depicts the myth of Bacchus, is 24in (60cm) in diameter.

The British Museum approved the object for loan on the proviso that Christchurch Mansion had a suitable display case to store it in. Colchester & Ipswich Museums sent them the specification for a Mono-3d they purchased recently, and the loan was happily approved. The Mono-3d with its fully-framed structure provides the highest level of physical security, balanced by a traditional aesthetic that integrates well in environments of all types. You can read more about the benefits of this case type on our TESS Demountable website.
