French Figural Fountain


A cast-iron fountain figure of a winged cherub with upturned countenance and windblown hair, standing on his proper left leg, with right leg swept back, and holding a fish in his hands, the fish plumbed for water, French, ca. 1870, the base marked “A. Durenne Sommevoire”. Paired with associated cast-iron fountain with single bowl, the bowl with foliate rim and four jets, the tapered baluster with cattails and flowers, the circular foot with a band of acanthus leaves, English, circa 1880. Figure 32 ins. high, 12 ins. wide, 13 ins. deep; height of bowl on baluster 44 ins. high; total height 76 ins. 54 ins. diameter. Antoine Durenne founded the firm in 1847 and became a visionary in the field, as he sought new ways of expanding the cast-iron industry. He adapted cast iron to meet the requirements for architectural decoration and produced stairs, balconies, and balustrades, among other objects. He went on to exploit cast iron artistically by reproducing ancient vases and sculptures and by casting groups of animals designed by modern artists.
