Marble slab under toilet/raised toilet flange
Why do some homes have these marble or slate slabs under the toilet? Before I attempt to replace the flange at my son's house, I need to know if this slab must be there. All the homes that I've been in around here have them but no one has them where I live. I will be able to remove the damaged flange without damaging the riser with a dremel attachment and patience.

What is that marble slab under the toilet called?
I live in an apartment building in Harlem, built ca. 1917. I'm interested in replacing this marble base because the one I have is quite damaged. I'd like to know if this thing has a name, but more importantly, where can I get a replica/replacement.
I can't believe how fast this help line is!
Thanks. It's been busted for as long as I lived here, that's nine years. So I'll make sure I find exactly what I need before I proceed.
