Monumental Bronze Company

Monumental Bronze Company

The Monumental Bronze Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut was a monumental mason firm specializing in the production of white bronze (zinc) monumental masonry, active between 1875 and 1912 with subsidiaries throughout the United States and Canada.

There were a number of American companies in the 1880s that through their catalogs sold zinc ornaments nationwide, such as “urns, eagles, civic ornaments, architectural details, and even cigar store Indians.” Mullins of Salem, Ohio was the most prominent but only Monumental Bronze purveyed it in grave markers.[1]
