An Oddity ...

This unusual little piece is something I should have posted about over Halloween; however, Kimberlee over at Edgar & Edgar asked if I had any unusual objects. I don't think it can get any more unusual than this! A miniature coffin measuring 5.25" long, 2" wide and 2.25" high. I found this little ditty at the Baltimore Antique Show this year (Mr. Goat was purchased from the same dealer). I believe this treasure was a souvenir container from the 19th century perhaps for a miniature mummy or crusader.

I'm working on my series concerning Flotsam and Jetsam style- I promise you won't be disappointed!
