Good Questions: Displaying Heirloom Plates?

Apartment Therapy DC reader Stephanie needs help showcasing heirloom plates:

"I have four antique china plates that I inherited from my grandmother. I want to display them in an interesting way...in other words, something a little more fun than just hanging plate holders on the wall. Also, they are high in sentimental value (I have no idea about the actual value), so I need a way to display them that is low risk for breakage. Any suggestions? Thanks!"
