    I would also add a sheet to the back of the frame telling the history of this piece. Beautiful!

    I would frame the piece and not touch it with any sewing.

    I agree...leave as is and have framed professionally to protect it.

    Wouldn't this make a wonderful headboard? With it's history might not work out, but...Oooh! the possibilities!

    I agree with Candace. Anything beyond this will decrease the value. I think you should explain this to the owner as well. If they opt for any of your other options then that is up to them. But if it was me, I would not touch it.

    I must say this is a magnificant piece of work!

If you frame it I would either type out or if you have great handwriting, write the story behind it and then have that frames with it.
    I agree with making sure the history is with it when framed, that way all generations know there history. God bless.
