Huge DSP Rock of Ages Monuments Sign w/ Gravestone - Fri May 23 2014 05:13 PM

Just a very cool and unusual sign. Probably 1930s give or take. Measure 8' x 4'. Guessing this is probably the only one of these out there.

Rock of Ages Corporation is a granite quarrying and finishing company located in Graniteville, Vermont. It was founded in 1885

Has a picture of a gravestone under a tree although I say it looks like a gas pump to me, lol!

Dont' mind the glare in the second set of pictures, the sun was pretty bright. Its a deep blue. There is some obvious porcelain damage but also some of that is paint that comes right off. One side is just a little better than the other.

Asking $2250 obo. Odd subject matter but don't think you'll find another.

Can deliver to CTO show in Columbus.

I have that same sign up in my backyard, on the original poles, and have seen several on ebay over the years.

OK good to know didn't think there was very many out there - at least I haven't seen any till now, lol. Figured it must have been made to be in a bracket. very nice!

My parents included a tour of Rock Of Ages quarry on their honeymoon in 1964. I want to go check it out someday. Picture is a still from their home movie taken on 8mm.
