Alice Maranda, died September 20, 1868. Her stone is located in the Central Cemetery, Millville, Massachusetts. This delicate image is of a wilted flower which denotes the end or passing of life. Flowers were often used on women and children’s gravestones—a symbol of fragility.
One of the many amazing colonial castings we have in the Newburyport shop by the Gravestone Girls of Worcester MA. Colonial stone carvers were true folk artists, and we are blessed to live an area where we can immerse ourselves in the artistry of their work. Importantly, these casting are hand-formed and finished, and no stones are ever impacted by the creation methods. The Gravestone Girls are deeply committed to preservation - and can often be found speaking to groups about cemetery conversation throughout the region.
Given the hand-made nature of the process - each casting may have some variation in color and tone.
