This grave marker is a "Zinker" made by the Monumental Bronze Co. between 1874 and 1914 in Bridgeprt, CT. They were referred to as "white bronze", although they are neither white nor bronze. They are made of zinc, and exposure to the elements gives them their distinctive blue-gray color.
The Monumental Bronze Co. was the only company in the United States to make these unusual markers, and all the casting was done in Bridgeport, although some assembly of the final product was done by a few subsidiaries. The variety was virtually unlimited since each marker was cast in individual pieces and then assembled.
