An old, free-standing fountain, decorated with a very effective, classicistic iconographic program.
Apart from a beautiful and stylistically coherent composition of the whole, particularly noteworthy is a large, masterfully sculpted figure of a woman, a beautiful putto and lions heads decorating the top basin, pouring water to the lower tier of the fountain and basins of the fountain.
Both lower basins are connected with the plinth of the fountain with the motive of grapevines and grapes. The plinth of the fountain is decorated with floral elements and rocaille.
Despite its 2.5 -metre height – in nature, the fountain captivates with its visual lightness and makes a lovely impression, which unfortunately no photo can convey.
An exceptionally prestigious and representative item, worthy of recommendation for elegant premises – for both indoors and outdoors.
A fountain of this class will definitely but with taste emphasize genius loci and the very high status of the location where it is found.
Besides being a wonderful decoration for a villa, residence, mansion or palace – it will also suit an exclusive hotel, a health resort, spa park, wellness centre, business club, golf course, prestige hall or the garden of a wedding house and a thousand other places and properties you host, and which there is an abundance of in our beautiful country.
