From Provence, this small arched limestone wall fountain has a curved and stepped-in molded back. It has a cast iron spout with an iron S-scroll, and the basin is rectangular with a galbe, or slightly out-curved center block at the front. Two iron bars extend from the back to the front for holding a planter or flowers. Fountains like this were originally connected to spring water sources, and the iron bars permitted to people to rest their water jugs or containers on the bars while they filled.
This charming little wall fountain has been carved by hand and will be perfect in any garden or courtyard. Stone is natural material that can become darker or lighter from the elements. Estimated total weight approximate 830 lbs.
CONDITION: Very good condition with added patina and intentional aging with slight nicks, etc.
