Sears Roebuck & Co., Tombstones and Monuments, Chicago, Illinois Catalog (circa 1907)

According to the “History of the Sears Catalog” section of the Sears Archives web site, “...The roots of the Sears catalog are as old as the company. In 1888, Richard Sears first used a printed mailer to advrtise watches and jewelry....”

The earliest Sears catalog that offered cemetery-related products for sale was the 1897 spring catalog, which presented grave guards and arches made of round iron frame work with coiled wire tassels on each post. Monuments constructed from Royal Blue Vermont marble were available in the 1900 fall Sears catalog; and by the 1902 Spring catalog, a separate memorial department was featured. Cemetery monuments were available in the general catalogs through the 1949 Fall Sears catalog.
