Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A large white marble two-tiered fountain with spitting fish at top, not perfect, but the overall effect is very pleasing, especially with moving, gurgling water

Rests on a 6" H x 29-30" diameter foundation

Lower tier is 32.5" diameter

Upper is 25.5" diameter

The fish has several minor losses
Left side fin and dorsal fin partially missing (see image 10)
Small part of tail, left side (see image 5)

The fish was broken off at some point and has a visible seem (also visible in image 5)

The several chips / small missing pieces are old breaks, not recent.
