Ideas for Displaying Glass Negative?

Good Questions

Q: A friend of mine gifted me a glass plate negative over the holidays, and I would love to display it. I am not afraid of "ruining" it (the emulsion is not in great shape anyways and the image on it is a bit blurry), but I can't figure out a good way to hang it in a window. A lightbox isn't really an option as we have very limited outlets, so I'd prefer to make use of natural light to view the negative. Does anyone have suggestions?
