Zinc Putto Tabletop Fountain with Lead Shell Basin
We've married these two pieces because they are so well-suited to each other. The 19th C zinc and spelter French putto fountainhead has exquisite detail and the water sprays gently from the top of his cornucopia into the shell-form basin. This piece would make a serene addition to a garden or sunroom. The lead basin is signed "Florentine Craftsmen" on the underside and dates to the 1940s. The fountain is self-contained as the re-circulating pump is hidden underneath the foot of the fountainhead.
