Antique Outdoor Fountain for the Garden of a Chicago, circa 1886, Row House

About

This Antique fountain was removed from the backyard of a home built in 1886 and appeared to be there since new. The fountain is a bit of a mix; we believe everything but the bowl, that hold the water is quite old. However, somewhere in its lifetime, the bowl was replaced with a fiberglass unit and I have to tell you, that visibly it is impossible to tell. The rest of the antique fountain, I believe is made of crushed stone, in a composite of some sort. There is a part of me that thinks it is carved stone, but unless I was 100% positive, I do not want to list it that way. The fountain does have a patina, commensurate with something from the 1800s.
