Katherina Rentzel Tombstone, Spring Hill Cemetery

There are some splendid examples of German vernacular stonecutting in the Spring Hill Cemetery, and this stone from 1881 is certainly one of them. It was cut in 1881, when it would have been almost impossible to find a tombstone of this sort in English that did not come from a factory.
