Magnificent Large Scottish Cast Iron Fountain Base or Planter
A rare find, this very large and completely redone piece most likely began its life as the bottom pan of a tiered fountain. We rescued it and after delicate sandblasting to remove the mud brown over Santa red-over Kelly green inch of paint, it has been repainted in a very smart low sheen anthracite grey color. The large-scale, combined with the fabulous waveform base and Scottish egg and dart rim make this a superb statement piece. It can be plumbed as a fountain or used as a large planter. Amazing with massed sedum!
