Most likely based on a Citroën U23 chassis.
Note the wheels and this slightly more modern styled version:

Maybe animatronnix has an opinion on this one?

Opinion: I like it! :D

Not sure about the coachbuilder, though. Could have been Currus as well as Dumont as well as...

Meanwhile we have more of these on the site, seen with different levels of decoration, depending on the funeral rank (and how much was paid for the ceremony).

Lavishly decorated: [Image: unknowncitroenu231.jpg] Even more lavishly decorated: [Image: unknowncitroenu232.jpg]

Unfortunately, the coachbuilder is still an established mystery. Not even lancelot, "Docteur T23", who released an excellent book about French funeral vehicles, was able to find out who built these stunning vehicles. Any additional info is welcome!
