SYMBOLISM

Coffin plaques are decorative adornments attached to a coffin that can contain various inscriptions like the name and death date of the deceased or a simple terms of endearment.

They are usually made of a soft metal like lead, pewter, silver, brass, bronze, copper or tin. The different metals reflect the different functions of the plaques, or the status and wealth of the deceased. For a basic funeral, a simple lead plaque would be lettered with the name, date of death and often the age of the departed, and nailed to the lid of a wooden coffin. But high status people could afford a plaque of a more expensive metal and elaborate design.

Coffin plaques go back at least as far as the 17th century and were reserved for people of wealth. Through the centuries, more people were able to afford the luxury of a coffin plaque and with the industrial revolution, by the mid-19th century, the cost of the plaques decreased so much that almost every family could afford to have one put on the coffin of their loved ones.

When coffin plaques began increasing in popularity, the practice of removing the plaques from the coffin before burial became the trend as they were often removed by the loved ones to be kept as mementos of the deceased. This practice peaked in the late 19th century.

Really detailed, good quality, replica with beautiful coloring & a fantastic paint job! I wanted a replica for my headboard as I like to frame & preserve my actual collection & this piece was not only affordable but surprisingly convincing. Unless you are within inches of it you can't tell it's a replica! I am super happy with my purchase.

So, I know this is a magnet, but it was begging to be hung above my bed. I used a 3M velcro strip and voila! I’m obsessed.
