Container in original question is a transfer case frequently used for transporting body via train. Two similar examples are represented in my collection, made by National Casket Co, one having reinforced glass portal. (Glass wasn't used for 'viewing' in traditional sense, merely ID in cases of contagion or advanced decomposition.) Dating is straightforward, as they are in numerous catalogs (also in collection) from 1912-1926. This 1921 catalog has largest images:



One is on display loan to Simpson Funeral Museum. Although not frequenting this site much any more, I am happy continually providing definitive facts for 1850s-1950s funerary objects, relieving burden from those who continually guess just to fluff up post counts.



The term Ziegler was not popularized until '50s, Korean War era, which are first references in catalogs.

Thank you from the depth of my Historical Correctness heart.

Once again, 2 pieces of local Rochester history tie neatly together. National Casket was located here at the corner of Exchange and Court until 1951 when the building was demolished for the Rochester War Memorial auditorium.

Another bit of History, National Caskets were first manufactured in Rochester with water power driven machinery.

He got the reaction he was hoping for Kent in that everyone is an idiot except him. Always good for a laugh.
