PROUDLY PRODUCED IN CANADA!
Each Canadian Coast Guard Badge Plate begins as a clear glass plate which becomes transformed into an exceptional, high quality keepsake. With many complex steps from start to finish, the creation process poses a high degree of difficulty. The delicate procedures result in the brilliantly rich crackle which receives and illuminates light and provides a unique element of depth to each piece. These remarkable heirlooms are rendered individually by Bonnie, with all processes administered on the backside of the glass.
Each 8" plate is framed in a black, 11"open faced solid wood shadow box lined with red ultra suede. Two custom engraved black plaques which sit on the frame add a personalized touch to these mementos, which can be either wall mounted or displayed on a stand. Included is a bilingual Certificate of Authenticity that is signed by Bonnie Saunders and applied to the backside of the frame. This certificate contains a brief description of the mission of the proud members who wear the badge or crest that is featured on the front of the plate. This is a great added feature for future generations to appreciate.
FOR THE PERSONALIZED ENGRAVED PLAQUES THAT SIT ON THE FRAME:
Bonnie recommends highlighting the rank/regimental number and name of the recipient on the smaller plaque. The second, larger engraved plaque provides an opportunity to include 3 additional sentences to better commemorate an occasion or words of choice. This is very important, as it will pass on historical details for future generations. There is a 60 character maximum for each sentence. Bonnie is happy to help you so the wording is perfect for the occasion.

When you purchase a Canadian Coast Guard Badge Plate, not only are you investing in a very unique heirloom, you are also supporting the many men and women who serve to protect us. A portion of each sale will be contributed towards the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary Fund.
Be sure to have your camera ready! The proud recipients will be pleased beyond measure!

"It was a real pleasure to present a wonderful Canadian Coast Guard plate from Bonnie Saunders of “Glass Treasures” at our management meeting in Oct 2019. We had the honour to recognized one of our own on his retirement after 32+ years of services with the Canadian Coast Guard. There were lots of compliments on how beautiful this memorabilia was and the absolute wonderful craftsmanship that was place on making this a very special presentation. Many questions as to where the plate came from and an overabundance of comments commenting how beautiful and truly unique this was. This was a first for CCG and no one ever seen this before during a ceremony.
Thank you very much for making Milo’s retirement a special one and providing us with a truly unique shadow box for him and his family to enjoy for years to come."
TESTIMONIALS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!

"Bonnie, thanks for the fantastic plates! After 40 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces I retired on 13 February 2019 and was formally presented with these in honour of my service. Col Nishika Jardine, an old friend and fellow member of RCEME, presented the Corps plate, and LCol Gabriel Dore, Commanding Officer RCSU (Central), presented the CIL plate.
The senior staff of RCEME were highly impressed with the corps plate and are interested in looking to make this part of their routine retirement presentations. If you are interested I'll pass on your contact information to them."
Lieutenant-Colonel (Ret'd) Charles Jansen
