    Antique English Bronze Bucket Boy Statue Fountain 1930s

    From the style of the sculpture including the elongated features of the boy and the smooth almost aerodynamic look of the work we would date this as late art deco early 30s style. It stands in at over five foot tall and is impressive without being imposing.

    The piece depicts a tall boy with outstretched arms holding a bucket high above his head. There is a hole in the bucket which suggests this would have been used as a water feature. This is how I imagine this piece really working with a pipe running up the back and a stream of water flowing from the bucket into a small lake in which the boy stands. This would really look fantastic especially with the right lighting on a balmy summers night.
    Being cast from the highest quality bronze the piece can withstand the vigours of outdoor use with no worries of rust. The patina to the bronze has a lovely menthol green leading to darker variations over tone variances.
    The style of his hair - a short quiff to one side - also suggests a late 20s early 30s style. We were lucky enough to find this at an architectural salvage company in Islington, London.
    Due to the unusual nature of this piece it will be of particular interest to interior and exterior designers or perhaps just the discerning individual.
