Limestone Wall Fountain with Wrought Iron Spout from Provence, France

$14,800.00

Description

Comprised of 25 pieces of stone, this limestone wall fountain was hand-carved in Provence, France, in the 2000’s. The wrought iron spout, which features several intertwined scrolls, has an older iron backplate that was salvaged from a fountain carved in the 1900’s.

The large half-octagonal basin (63” W x 40” D) features quarter round edges with cavetto molding at the base. An arched crown, with another layer of cavetto above thin molding, sits on top of the three-tiered back wall. The stones that make up the back wall have each been carved with a portion of thick molding with canted corners that encircles the recessed center. A pair of concave corbels with thick molding on the outer edges flank the wall.

An artistic French finishing technique has been used to give the appearance of age. A warm and subtle patina has also been applied, allowing this versatile stone wall fountain to be used inside or outdoors.

CONDITION: Good condition with intentional distress to mimic antiquity. Oxidation to the iron spout. The backplate was salvaged from a fountain carved in the 1900’s, which has led to a slightly more advanced patina. Stone is a natural material that can change color with exposure to the elements.
