About

This beautiful French centre fountain from Provence has been hand-carved and distressed out of Estaillade limestone. The centre post has a ball finial, while four sides having recessed panels with stylized ogee moldings. The ball portion can be left on or removed before installation. On two of the four sides, there are metal spouts supported by s-scrolls surrounded by carved circular petal ornamentation. The basin is in the shape of an octagon. This style of fountain was found in villages throughout France, and the two bars were used to hold buckets while filling water.

Installed dimensions: Height approximately 79 1/2 inches; diameter approximately 90 inches (depending on amount of grout used); approximate weight 4,800 lbs.
