Coffin Plates Of Delia Cardinal

Coffin Plate
A sad story
I have a feeling that the two Coffin Plates on this page represent a rather sad story. The Coffin Plates are for Delia Cardinal age 23 and Delia Cardinal aged 1. The Coffin Plates have no dates but it is apparent that they were made around the same time. I would guess from the style that the plates were from the 1880s or 1890s.I can only guess that the plates are for a mother and daughter or perhaps two sisters.
