What could be a more perfect symbol of Marblehead than Abbot Hall and a fence lined with Hollyhocks?
One of the oldest cultivated flowers in the world, the Hollyhock was introduced to the western world by the China trade. If you are a 'Header, you know these colorful harbingers of warm weather as Marblehead Weeds. Once abundant, today - not so much - but the Hollyhock will forever be the unofficial flower of Marblehead.
Each one of our 2-3/8" x 5-1/4" decorative plaques is hand-cast, hand-painted, and made of bonded marble dust.
