£0 Shipping to

A massive and spectacular fountain centrepiece, hand-raised in sterling silver with cast and hand-chased decoration. The centre of the oval basin rises to a pinnacle surmounted by a figure of Neptune or Poseidon riding a mythological hippocampus (half horse, half fish) atop a breaking wave.

The extravagant basin is also hand-chased with a wave-effect base that has cast and applied marine ornamentation that includes lobsters, seashells, octopus, starfish, whales, fish, water nymphs and more hippocampi. Water springs from a series of open mouths around the perimeter and on the central stem.

This exceptional piece contains more than 15 kg of silver and has a built-in motor to run the fountain, but the piece can equally be used as a serving dish for seafood or a floral display.

This huge silver fountain is not available to purchase online. Please get in touch if you would like more information or are interested to buy it.
