This dignified wooden chest urn with hand cast fine pewter is crafted with flawless solid Cherry and lots of attention to detail. The urn features hand cast fine pewter side brackets, corners and picture frame, centuries-old technique of dovetail joinery and unique closure system in the Spanish windlass style to add another layer of detailed craftsmanship. It has a hand rubbed finish. The picture frame has a plexiglass cover and is held in place by two screws.
The urn measures 8 inches in height, 6.5 in depth and 6.5 inches in width with the capacity of up to 130 cubic inches. It can be used as a small individual size urn or special size pet urn.
Note about the Spanish windlass style closure system: Spanish windlass was used for centuries to secure cargo in the holds of ships. The basic principle is that of a tourniquet. A rod is slid under a line, then turned so that both ends of the rod pass over the top of the line. The rod is turned until the desired amount of pressure is achieved. Then the end of the rod is secured to the line preventing it from unwinding.
The urn has an option of adding a plaque engraved with up to 13 letters and it is on one line. The plaque is engraved before the pewter is antiqued. Please provide the text for the plaque in the Special Instructions box during the checkout. Thank You.
The urn has also an option of adding a laser engraving in the Baker Signet 21 point size font. Please provide the text for the laser engraving in the Special Instructions box during the checkout. Thank You.
