This casket is being sold by Erna Hiscock Antiques. A really interesting shape and construction. I have no idea if it shows evidence of being put together later or if the embroidery was original. The lock is period and I have seen it on other pieces. If you look at the signature weaving, it looks like 1713 or 1718 in the date line. I would love to get a listing of all the words on the sides, not on her website.
