‘The'invention relates to an improvement‘in in
or box 2. This box’ will'serve as the foundation
caskets, and particularlyof‘the type which‘ will
resist corrosionandprovide a dead air space
upon which the remainder of the casket is built:
Positioned inside of this box 2 will be a plurality
of transversespacers 3 which may be spaced ver
tically as desired. Similar spacers 4 will extend
between the‘ casket walls to prevent decay. ‘
I It is one‘of'the objects of the invention to pro-'‘
vide removable hardware-for the’ casket so that
the cost of the casket will be materially reduced
because the hardware ‘may bejvremoved and re
laterallyacross the base 50f the box 2, and sup?
porting blocks 6, of ‘the same thickness as the‘
spacers 3 and 4 will cooperate with the spacers

should decay.
The'external wall ‘l5serves to carry the ‘usual
moldings 20 and'2l and also serves to support

as being made up with spaced walls 24 and‘25 to
provide the air space 26, the same as‘the walls of
the casket.
In order that the corpse may be viewed in the
casket a glass cover 28 is shown as being posi

mounted in a rubber gasket 29 so that a seal will
be obtained, the gasket being held in position by
a holddown ?ange 30.
In order that a complete seal will be had at the
