About this item

This is a monumental two-tier fountain sculpted in bronze in the neo-classical style, dating from the late twentieth century.

This formidable fountain sprays water out of the top and out of four large roaring lion head cartouches. The water goes into the top tier and out through seven lion's-headwater cartouches. It is heavily decorated with roses, scallop ribbing, and acanthus leaves

It is raised by a column with four classically dressed maidens each holding an amphora vase and each spouts water on different levels.


This fountain is cast from solid bronze and was made by the traditional lost wax "cire perdue" method.

Add an elegant element to your garden with this lovely fountain, which can be used as a stand-alone fountain or as a centrepiece to a pond.

Lost Wax Method
sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
