About The Stone Mill Vertical Hanging One or Two-Sided Slate Plaques
Bring the natural, majestic beauty of slate to your entrance, curbside or door side. The Stone Mill plaques say so much about you as they convey a sense of permanency that few materials do. The fine-grained, deeply carved slate plaques will weather the world with you.
About the Materials
Slate is a natural metamorphic rock formed 500 million years ago. The Stone Mill slates are newly quarried in the United States and hand cut to size at the Stone Mill factory in Connecticut. This plaque is available as a vertical or horizontal sign with an optional bracket for either.
About the Finishes
Because slate is a natural product of the earth, there are features and color variations inherent in the rock. These variations enhance the natural beauty and unique character of each slate piece. Each plaque is highlighted with durable enamels intended to last as long as the slate plaque itself. The following color combinations are available:
About the Personalization
- Black Slate with Gold Text
