An unusual name for an unusual product - a GLASS CASKET! Glass coffins, which were cushioned with yards of fabric, were not meant to display the body but rather to hygienically protect it from the elements. Glass was being used in casket construction as early as the 1850s and patents are seen starting in 1859 for glass caskets, but DeCamp did not patent his two piece adult sized casket until 1915. Number 11721 for 5 shares to Roy Peterson. Signed by ED Pratt and JM (?). Excellent condition with no corner, edge or discoloration issues.
