A coffin for
Halloween, what could be more appropriate for a vampires
For our annual Halloween party, we place a toe-pincher coffin
on a low table just inside the front door with a flickering
candle-piece at each end as our party centerpiece. Dressed
in complete vampire attire, I lay in the coffin and greet
our guests as they arrive.
Below are a
few of the coffins available for your Halloween pleasure.
"Black Gothic Toe Pincher" Coffin also called the Vampire Coffin made by
Vintage Coffins, is without a
doubt the most beautiful and well made coffin we have ever seen!
Vintage Coffins specializes
in building a variety of classic coffins using old world craftsmanship,
including the ever popular toe pincher style. This coffin
is the ultimate show piece for Halloween, your Halloween party or just to accent your home every day of the year,
like we do.
The standard size is
seventy-eight inches in length, but one can be built to your particular body
specifications. Using a process called ebonizing, the coffin is darkened, but still allows the grain of the wood to show through.
The lid can be either a lift off or hinged.
While the padded burgundy red
lining is the most popular, you can choose any color of lining you like. This
high quality coffin comes with contemporary swing bar handles in a black and nickel
finish, or you can choose from six different one-piece metal handle designs
in copper, antique gold, or silver.

produce their coffins. Every coffin is hand made to order and there is a
waiting list, so you will want
to order well in advance of Halloween. Due to there size and weight, these
coffins can only be shipped via freight.
