Best Answer

Batesville

The answer "Batesville" needs correction:

Aaliyah was buried in one of the last seamless solid copper deposit caskets (units made from electrolytically deposited copper instead of welded sheets of wrought copper) manufactured by the (former) National Casket Co. of Boston. This was a very exclusive casket, extremely heavy (over 600 lbs - two to three times the weight of a standard sheet copper casket) and extraordinarily expensive - ten to twelve times as much as a standard copper sheet casket. Aaliya's casket cost even an extra 20% to 25% more than a "simple" copper deposit casket because it had a silver plated exterior. Her ornamental National No. 20761 model was a double lid casket featuring an undivided outer top and an inner divided inner lid. The interior was of hand tufted velvet.

Aaliyah Haughton's casket was manufactured by the former National Casket Company (of Boston) which had been founded in 1890 and went out of business in the 1980s.

Aaliyah's casket was a National No. 20761 design, a seamless copper deposit casket (units made from electrolytically deposited copper instead of welded sheets of wrought copper) with lavish ornamental corners and a hand tufted premium velvet interior. Due to solid copper walls featuring a thickness of 1/8 inch (3mm), her double lid casket was extremely heavy (over 600 lbs) and extraordinarily expensive - ten to twelve times as much as a standard copper sheet casket (which weigh between 200 and 300 lbs). Aaliyah's casket cost even an extra 20% to 25% more than standard copper deposit caskets because its exterior was silver-plated. National copper deposit caskets of other designs were used for example for the burial of President Franklin D. Roosevelt as well as for Elvis Presley.

What kind of casket was William Randolph Hearst buried in?

When the famous newspaper magnate died in 1951, he was buried in one of the most prestigious luxury caskets available - a seamless copper deposit casket manufactured by the National casket company of Boston, Mass. The casket, a round corner design with the type series designation No. 21200, was largely the same as that which had been used for the funeral of President Franklin D. Roosevelt a few years before. With walls of a thickness of 1/8 of an inch (about 3 mm) and a triple lid - an undivided outer lid, split inner panels and a full oval plate glass lid over the body of the deceased - the empty casket had a weight of some 700 lbs. The interior of the casket consisted of white hand tufted velvet. Hearst's casket was one of the most expensive ones available at that time because caskets made of electrolytically deposited copper cost up to a dozen times the price of caskets made of 32 oz sheets of wrought copper. Black & White photos (available on the Internet) taken at the Hearst funeral seem to indicate that his casket had a silver plated finish. This would have increased the high price of the casket for another 20%. For the Hearst family, price was of course no consideration.

What companies manufacture or manufactured cast bronze caskets?

Currently (in 2014) there is only one company which produce cast bronze caskets - caskets which are not welded from sheets of wrought sheet bronze, but units which are cast like bells from molten bronze poured into a form - in the US: the York-Matthews company makes the "Pharaoh Sarcophagus" model, a cast bronze casket weighing 1,100 lbs and offered at a manufacturer's suggested list price of $ 270,000, but available from Online casket retailers at a "bargain" price of 160,000. The casket is cast in Italy, but marketed in the US. In the second half of the 20th century, there were still three companies in the US which produced cast bronze caskets: the Boyertown Burial Casket Company, the Springfield Metallic Casket Company and finally the National Casket Company of Boston, which manufactured the famous "Sarcophagus" caskets, one of which was used for the burial of Henry Ford. A cast bronze casket is also shown in the Fine Art Casting Gallery of Kassons Casting, a firm located in Austin, TX. Unfortunately, there is no information given for which casket supplier this unit was casted; perhaps for the SCI corporation, as both firms are from Texas.
