A rare pair of antique coffin or casket plates

Victorian era, these are large in size, definitely plates that would have been used for a more wealthy ceremony, possibly for a double funeral being an exact pair.

Designed as a pair of urns draped with swags and filled with an assortment of flowers from sunflowers to roses.

They are made from gilt painted pressed and moulded tin.

The backs have 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 and unusual to find in pairs.

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

Approx measurements:
11" length
5.25" width
