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.

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.
