playing games

Monday night I was up in the city visiting Johnny until about 11pm. By the time I rolled in through the door, I was tired! Imagine my surprise when in the dark, my fiance calls to me that there is a box on the back stoop. Inside were four antique bocce balls and a note from my dad.

What a wonderful and unusual surprise! My dad had purchased them at the Crescent City Auction House a few weeks ago - and I know that he loved them because I had heard about them many times.
Each ball is made of mahogany and has little bits of ivory to mark the number of the ball. Now I need to find a way to display them that does them justice - what do you recommend? I was thinking a shallow woven tray or bowl set on top of the piano...

Thanks again dad! I love them.
