Another Antique Advertisement

This delightfully detailed advertisement from an 1870 directory of Albany businesses features a cherub carving a gravestone - complete with the popular motif of a willow tree. Behind the busy little cherub are more samples of this marble dealer's stock, including an urn and an obelisk (two very common monument styles found at the Rural Cemetery), as well as a marble mantle.
