Bible Casket.

Hi everyone, hope your all having a great weekend! This piece of work i have had on the go for a fair amount of time and is just about at its completed stage.


Unlike a bible box which was usually plain but sometimes carved the bible casket was usually heavily decorated and belonged to a royal household or an abbey or monastery, my version differs from the bible boxes i have created in the past as you can see but the other big difference is that i will be making the bible that will also accompany it, hopefully i will share the images of the completed piece with you next week along with a few more hidden surprises!!



The casket itself is made from English walnut and measures 2'' long to give you an idea of scale, it has an Ivory arched section to the front with an inset brass lock plate this is then inlaid with another tiny piece of ivory where the key hole is located.
 
 
 
 
Make sure you check back next week for the finished item!
Now time for walkies with grand children.
Have a great week everyone .           Tony.

  10. Although I have heard of Bible boxes before, not until now, had I ever heard of such a thing as a Bible Casket. How marvelous is my miniature introduction to one! The finish of it looks very well used and the lettering is wonderful along with the lock detail and all of the other decorative finishes makes this a real treasure! Thank you for sharing this; it is a real treat!
