Item Description

Unusual 18th Century open casket for a small child, carved from softwood with oil gilt decoration and its original teal blue paint.

Profusely decorated with acanthus leafs, foliage and fruits. Acanthus leaves were often used to symbolise immortality and rebirth.

The internal copper liner flanked by gilt scroll carved uprights, raised on four substantial gilt paw feet. Age related wear and the odd repair, would make for a wonderful planter.

145cm wide, 62cm deep, 68cm high
