Description

This elegant and large wall fountain from France has been hand carved and distressed out of solid French limestone.  The top of the fountain has a unique stepped crown carved in an arch.  A similarly shaped indentation with canted bottom corners is carved into most of the stones that comprise the back wall.  As a contrast to this recession, there are two raised Fleur de Lys that surround the two S-scroll iron spouts.  These have been carved in relief by hand and add a unique decorative element.  The rectangular basin has rounded cyma reversa molding.  All of this was done by artisans in Provence using centuries old stone working techniques, and their attention to detail is fantastic.

This French limestone wall fountain will add interest to any wall, indoors or out.

Approximate weight: 2,500 lbs.

CONDITION:  Wear consistent with age and use. Minor chips and intentional distress marks. Varying and weathered patina. Natural Stone.
