The Carnegie Hero Fund

The Carnegie Hero Fund, established by Andrew Carnegie in 1904, awards medals to people in the US and Canada who have risked their lives in order to save others.

The Carnegie Medal commemorates those who have gone beyond the call of duty to oftentimes extraordinary risk in order to ensure the safety and well being of those in peril. At On Display, we share this respect for such heroic acts, so we agreed to partner with the foundation to design and manufacture the boxes used to house these medals.

Each box is carefully crafted from premium cherrywood, lined with a felt interior and protective silk cushioning, embellished with a brass latch, and adorned by a beautiful dark finish.
