I've been watching this. It's cycled through once before at a higher price.There's a pic in Silverman of a real Houdini casket from 1907 in Kevin Connolly's collection that looks just like this.I'd like to know what show this was used in.
You know, I was thinking that I had seen a 'real' coffin similar to this before. I just looked at the Silverman picture, wow. Same coffin design but the pictures are different.
Could it have been "Ragtime"? Found this: http://www.playbill.com/news/article/73087-Original-Broadway-Ragtime-Model-T-Up-for-Auction-on-eBay
Ah, I just saw your comment after posting my own story about this on my site. Good work, melbo! I believe you got it.
Thank you. =)
