Antique Italian Marble Fountain Quatrefoil Basin Carved MarbleAntique Item
Exquisite and rare Antique Italian Hand-Carved Marble Fountain with a Classic Quatrefoil Basin and Fish Spout, that was removed from a Chicago mansion. The quatrefoil design dates back to 850BC and means four leaves and is a symbol for good luck. We have been told by the previous owner that the home where the antique Italian marble fountain resided, was built in the early 1900’s and that seems to mesh well with our thoughts of the Antique Italian Marble Fountains age. Certainly, any Antique Italian Marble Fountain that’s been subjected to over 100-Chicago Winters is not going to be flawless, however, the Antique Italian Marble Fountain presents itself quite well and nothing jumps out at your eye requiring restoration. There are a couple of locations where you can see an old repair down low, but they were executed professionally and are structurally sound.
**The height of the ledge is 13.5".
**Please note the fish tale is missing the tip on part of its tail, image 7. There are two old repairs, images 17 and 19.
