Post mortem, baby in casket
Carte de visite
Private collection of Ron Coddington
A child lay in a dark, enameled lined with light silken material and decorated with ornamental brass or silver-colored handles and edge trimmings. A small spray of flowers is tucked into the baby's hands. He or she wears a full-length dressing gown. The casket sits atop a table adorned with a dark tablecloth.
