Large Bone Casket
This is the biggest bone casket I have seen!
It measures 21.5cm x 9cm x 5.5cm and is made from bone (cow or camel) and brass. The middle pieces on the lid have been carved and have brass strands wrapped around the bone which gives a lovely effect.
Sadly, this vintage box has been squashed at some point. This has resulted in the top specifically the decorated bones to the front being pushed down. There is also a fracture to one of the bone pieces at the back which, although hardly noticeable, makes it a little sharp.
The inside is decorated with a velvet-like lining in dark brown colour. The lid is hinged and there are two brass fasteners on the front.
A stunning bone casket and the biggest example I have ever seen.
