Default Weapons display 'themes'

I know we have discussed display racks, holders and cases over the years, but I wasn't sure if we had touched on so called 'theme' background ephemera supporting the type sword, sword history, country of origin, etc. In other words, for a medieval swords collection, perhaps family crests, banners, goblets, etc. For an African collection, perhaps leather shields or trophy animal heads, etc, etc. I believe there accouterments accentuate and highlight a collection, bringing out the whole historical (and possibly cultural) aspects.

Here are some pics of my pirate/privateer/maritime collection. The weapons are all real, as are many of the items. That being said, the gems and coins, 'old maps' and broadsides are for looks. And yes, the skull is also only a prop-
