Well Head or Well-Head, Marble, Iron, 19th Century

About

Well brocal. White marble, iron, 19th century. Well drill made of white marble carved with the cylindrical interior, the flat and smooth extraction cover, and the polygonal exterior, decorated this part with a series of flat moldings whose proportions, harmony and situation show a clear influence of Neoclassicism models. On the upper edge there are some pieces of iron curved at their ends and joined together, from which the elevation with the horcones would be formed, in which a fixed pulley would probably be fixed to facilitate the rise by rope of the cube of the water. Roman well brochures are preserved in museums around the world (puteales), showing that the shape, adapted to the function, has not changed so much since then (there are medieval, Renaissance, etc.). What are different are the materials, the decoration and the tools used to create these drill bits. The classicist influence of the brocal has already been mentioned. It is necessary to add that the stone was a frequent material in these elements, while the marble used to be reserved for wells in prominent residences." Size: 79 x 79 x 78 cms.
