Marilyn Monroe Grave Marker
Rarely do we have such a unique and interesting piece as this one. In the Nate D Sanders November 17th 2016 auction, we have the marker for the grave of Marilyn Monroe at auction, from the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
Marilyn Monroe’s grave is visited by thousands of fans each year who often touch the marker, causing oxidation of the bronze. As a result, the marker is changed periodically, with this marker dating to the early 1990s. All of the markers originate from the Gasser-Olds Company, a bronze foundry, as this one does. Upon the marker’s back reads, ”Make Two Patterns for Marge”; Marge is the supervisor who set the lettering on the marker.
Bronze marker reads ”Marilyn Monroe / 1926 – 1962”, bordered by the original scroll design. Measures 15.25” x 4.75”. Some rubbing and oxidation to bronze, overall in very good condition. In 2015, another marker from Marilyn Monroe’s site sold for over $200,000 at Julien’s Auctions. Our minimum bid is $50,000.
