Fountain with Female Figure

Summary

Type Fountain

     Pevsner described the fountain as "Funny but engaging" (1). Situated in a large pool of clean water, the lower stage of the fountain has decorative ironwork around the base. A pillar supports a central basin above which are several cranes standing among bullrushes, reeds and lily pads. Above this, supported on a octagonal stone pillar, the upper basin is surmounted by a Classical female figure pouring the contents of an amphora into a goblet. The fountain is in a very poor state of repair and the colouring improve the appearance.
