Medieval Skull & Crossbones from German Castle

Beautiful hand-carved and very old Medieval skull and crossbones.

This was a gift to us from a woman who in her day was quite the looker and jet setter.

Her husband was a famous artist, designing Art Deco theatres.

While staying at a castle in Germany, they fasked the castle owner if they could keep the skull and crossbones for their own house in Chicago.

So it travelled from Germany to Chicago, where the husband eventually died and this was used as his grave marker.

When the woman moved to Washington State, she took it with her and kept it in her garden until she gifted it to us.

The photo is from when it was a tombstone on the husband's grave.
