Antique French Copper Lavabo Fountain Arts Crafts Repousse Fish Design w Brass Tap. Unfortunately the photos dont do this lovely piece justice!!!!! It really is a beautifully eye catching item with a reservoir for holding water and with a cute little brass tap attached.
Exquisitely hand hammered with fish embossing and a super sheen to the copper. Just hung from its hanging loop in my garden. It was tested and found to hold almost 2 litres (around 4 pints) of water and was found to be completely watertight with no apparent water loss over a six hour period. The tap moves freely and allows water to run easily with no major leakage once turned off. This lovely item is approximately 12 inches long by 10.5 inches wide with the reservoir curving almost 5 inches from the back plate.
The photos shows discolouration within the reservoir that suggests that this piece has been well used in the past. The photos also show some nice hand hammered marks to the base of the reservoir. Please use the photos to help your assessment and feel free to ask any questions or impart your wisdom. Lovely item which is quite a feature and talking point that looks lovely and is generally in a nice condition. Collection from the North East of England is available but I will happily post.
