A rare early antique coffin or casket plate.

This is a late Georgian era piece, large in size, definitely a plate that would have been used for a more wealthy ceremony.

It has a mourning image, a lady mourning at a graveside beside an urn with a weeping willow tree, the lady also sits by a harp, the bottom of the plate is decorated with a wreath and torches.

This type of image was often depicted in Georgian mourning pieces including jewellery pieces.

It is made from silvered pressed and moulded tin.

The back has had a later string glued to the back in order to hang it.

Previously part of a larger private collection, these larger and more elaborate plates are scarcely found with many destroyed or remaining in private collections.

Good used condition overall, wear commensurate with age, some very light rusting to corner areas, string added to the reverse.

Approx measurements:
10.75" length
