This casket plate is what all other casket plates aspire to be. It is large and heavy....sturdier than what we usually see. The decoration and engraving is beautiful, but not fussy or overblown.

This plate memorialized young William Slusser, born in 1897 and dead just 19 years later in 1916. I've done extensive research and found a lot of young men with the same name, just not the birth dates.

This is a large plate, 8 inches long and 5 inches high and weighing in at just under a pound. If you are a collector of plates or someone just struck by the beauty of this piece, you will not be disappointed.

We will be adding additional casket plates this coming week. If you would like to purchase one now and are considering one of the other ones, please let me know so we can hold it and combine shipping. International buyers, please convo me for shipping.
