Consisting of seven pieces of Vicenza limestone, this wall fountain with surround was hand-carved in Veneto, Italy. The fountain is comprised of four blocks of stone, each with a warm, natural patina. At the foot of the fountain is a three-piece shaped surround that is 5 ¾” tall.

A molded crown graced with cavetto cornices and quarter round protrusions tops a back wall with cyma recta molding. A recessed niche has been carved into the back wall and is continued on the stone beneath. The top of the niche has been filled in a Neoclassical fashion, with a scalloped shell. A pair of S-scrolls forms the base of the shell, just below a fountain spout hole that drains into the basin beneath. The rim of the basin features thick quarter round molding above a semi-ovate bowl, which is supported by a half-column with a molded base.

Our carved Italian limestone wall fountain can be placed in any outdoor setting, such as a garden or courtyard. It can also be used inside as a sink or interior fountain. The surround stones can be used as a border for flowers or plants, adding additional appeal to the lovely fountain.

CONDITION: Good condition with minor nicks and rubs. Light buildup with moss and lichen. Stone is a natural material that can become darker or lighter from the elements. Certain sections, specifically the back wall and the surround, have developed a speckled patina.
