A Beautiful 19th century, Baroque style French well head.
It is made of a composite stone (crushed stone), decorated all the way around with cherubs, urns, flowers and leaves.
It has a four piece separate original base.
This would look fantastic as a garden centrepiece and is perfect for containing a small tree or adapting as a water feature for instance.
Condition is very good for its age, with natural weathering and lichens.
There is a repair (as shown in the third photo) that is quite crude, but it does not effect the structure at all and is not very noticeable in my opinion.
We are selling this item as it has been used for a few years as display in a shop and is now needing a new home. It was originally purchased at a French antiques market. I wish we had a garden to put it in!
This is a large and very heavy item, the winning bidder will need to arrange collection from Central London (EC1) with a van and at least three burly men!
80cm diameter (from outer edges)
84cm tall (excluding base)
base is approximately 7cm
PAYPAL or CASH ON COLLECTION only.
Alternatively you could arrange UK or international shipping - www.lockson.co.uk (for instance)
