Melling Obelisk, St. Peter’s Cemetery (Arlington)

This would count as a splendid obelisk in most small cemeteries; and so it is here, except that, like everything else, it is overshadowed by the immense Winter Bros. obelisk nearby. Nevertheless, it has a particularly ornate base, and the cross-anchor-palm ornament is almost exuberant. The spaces for inscriptions on the base seem never to have been used.
