19th Century Belgian Bluestone with Brass Tap

$1,395

About

Ceci n’est pas une pipe. Like the famous surrealist masterpiece, this intriguing object was also made in Belgium, but a century earlier — circa 1800. The antique brass tap is framed in elegant Belgian bluestone, punctuated by the expressive outline of the sleek slab. The peculiarity of the object is elevated by a cryptic number under the tap —23. This intricate and stylish decoration will fill any outdoor or indoor space with the profound symbolism of an unsolved mystery.
