Hailing from Aix-en-Provence in the South of France and dating to the 1900s, this fountain element was cast in four sections. The soft cream-color has developed a mottled patina of brown, black, and gray on the basin, while the angular column has significantly less speckling.
A hexagonal basin with slender and protruding quarter-round edges sits on top of a similarly shaped column, also adorned with thinly projected moldings and a beveled base. Inside the bowl is an elevated platform, carved with a removable door, making it ideal for housing a pump for a fountain or water jet. The platform and door can be removed, allowing the hexagonal basin to be utilized as an elevated planter box for any outdoor setting.
The interior diameter of the basin is 22 ¾ inches.
CONDITION: Very good condition with light wear, commensurate with being used outside.
