Just thought I would share but a lady gave us this spanish style toe pincher because her new husband was creeped out by it being in her garage!

Not sure how true it is but this supposedly came with an article of a man arrested for smuggling opium under the silk liner? Not pictured but the liner is missing.

Sweet, not sure about the opium, I think the cops would still have the coffin.

Yes according to what she said it was sold at an auction (I guess after being held as evidence for a while) and her boss bought it. She saw it in her boss's garage one day and he said he has had it for years and just gave it to her.

Ah, your right after some time they do auction off all that stuff. It's a awesome coffin you don't see real toe pinchers any more.

That thing is cool! Her husband must be a real whimp. I could see a woman creeped out by it. But a man?

Yeah, not creepy at all but if refinished it would make a helluva book shelf or liquor cabinet!

Nice, or a wine rack.
