Old cast iron coffin handle.
Original new handle, never laid, typical of the 1920s.
Condition: rust in places.
On the grounds of a winged hourglass.
Indeed the hourglass evokes the inexorable passage of time, every grain of sand representing a day of our life.
The hourglass is presented with wings of Dove or Angel, both messengers of God, as if the instrument of the measure of time became, with death, the soul that the Dove or the angel will convey to Heaven.
By its reversible side, the hourglass evokes the Faculty of a new life or real life when it is returned to restart a cycle.
