Zsa Zsa -- Solid Gold Offer From the Grave

2/1/2011 7:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

What does Zsa Zsa Gabor get for surviving blood clots and an amputation? A high-end funeral company is sending her a free gold-plated casket -- WORTH $40,000!!!! 

Zsa Zsa Gabor Gold Casket

TMZ obtained a letter sent from a company called The Golden Casket which was sent to Zsa Zsa last Friday. The letter states, "We would like to honor Zsa Zsa Gabor by providing an exquisite, handcrafted, pure 24k gold casket."

It's unclear if the company knows double Z is not yet casket-ready ... but the letter continues, "We believe Zsa Zsa would want to be forever remembered as she has always been in life -- beautiful, elegant, uncompromising and completely original."

Zsa Zsa's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, tells us he is "going to take the casket and have the gold melted to get a nice ring out of it.  These are some f*cking sick people!"

It's not going to be very easy to fit that into one of those Cash4Gold envelopes.

I'd have a plane dump that damn casket on top of the fool that thinks this is okay.

Honestly, what could they be thinking?

Kind of like a casket salesman approaching those being wheeled into surgery....

I think it's a pretty nice thing to do. After all everyone dies at some point and funerals are darn expensive! People pre-plan their funeral, right down to the last detail, all the time. There is nothing wrong with that. And she is very elderly.

The person who wrote comment #3 is an idiot. Zsa Zsa Gabor had a kind of beauty that Natalie Portman, Jennifer Aniston, or Paris Hilton couldn't match even on their best day. Gabor traveled all over the globe with the world's wealthiest and most powerful men, sampling absolutely the best of everything money can buy. Despite her beauty and popularity, her personal life was a shambles -- not only because of her many husbands but her relationship with her 2 sisters. An original, she was usually asked to play the role of "Zsa Zsa Gabor" and never failed to entertain audiences with juicy bits of scandal. If she wasn't interesting, you wouldn't be here.

If he doesn't want it I will take it and put it in my bedroom and sleep in it. That's a sweet casket right there.

It was completely tasteless of the casket company to exploit an old lady who is still fighting to extend her life. Thanks for publishing this story and giving them the bad publicity they deserve.

1St to be the only person to remember her and think it is sweet and fitting...yeah prince von-ahole has done tons but I am sure he would welcome this gesture in open arms!!! He latched onto her beauty and money but she knew as a cougar what she was getting and I am sure many cougars would/could agree that this is a great honor for them to offer!!

i hope zsa zsa really was as mean a lady as they say she was cause this von ahole guy, he sure takes the cake. you would think that he would want a FREE casket. but then again maybe he plans to scream broke soon as she dies and have someone else pay for the funeral, in which case? i guess he could melt it down and make a ring out of it. be nice if he would respect other people's feelings while they are trying to show respect for his wife.

That's messed up of her husband. The company meant well, even though it does sound like they are talking about her in the past. But if Zsa Zsa did die, wouldn't she already be buried? Strange company but the gesture meant well.

someone should shove it back up their asses, mean pricks. How rude is that. Those of you saying shes old or funerals are expensive, think about it. When youre old, and someone sends you a casket, will you really take it gladly to remind u of how life goes by all the time... It is easy to be a smartass when youre young and think youre invincible.
