Unusual Antique 1865 Silver Coffin Plate/plaque, Funeral, Victorian, Mourning For Sale
What an interesting piece. Actually two pieces. These were apparently sisters who died within one month of each other in 1865. This listing is for "Delinda Townsend, Died July 8th 1865 Aged 16 Years". This is very simple, albeit elegant, plaque. It is oval with machine-engraved edge. There is a slight bend in the plaque but no cracks or corrosion. This is likely high grade silver but it is not marked. The size is roughly 5.5 inches by 3.5 inches. I have listed the second piece, for Susan Townsend, separately.
