Vintage Mortician’s Cooling Table

Curious Nature

$ 599.99 

Cooling tables are wooden platforms on which a dead body would be temporarily stored and prepared for a funeral. Ice was placed beneath it to keep the body chilled, slowing the decomposition process. It could also be used to display the body for a viewing if the casket was not delivered in time. 

This cooling table folds up and has a handle, making it portable for morticians on house calls!
