This is an incredible and RARE Antique Old 1920s Gothic Primitive Wood Folk Art Grave Marker Tomb Stone, acquired from an old and eccentric antiquities and art collection in Los Angeles, California. This wooden grave marker reads in French: A la Memoire Joseph Pepin de Epoux de Lucie Champagne Decede le 6'Janviere 1923 Alage 56 Ans RIP. This appears to either be a cemetery's model which would have been shown to the family before the tombstone was created from stone, or an actual grave used piece. After doing some research, I have discovered that Joseph Pepin and Lucie Champagne lived in Quebec, and that this piece originates from Canada 1911 Census of Canada.This work is approximately 16 1/2 inches wide x 54 inches tall x 2 1/2 inches deep.
