Antique French limestone well-head water feature
Antique French limestone well-head water feature. It is presented here with an antique Angers slate back-piece (BCA ref 00257), which could be replaced with another rectangle, or for example our antique limestone blocks (see refs 01188, 01255 or 01425) if preferred. Presumed no “newer” than 19th century, probably much older, but it is difficult to judge. It has excellent worn patina. The old cast-iron pump is included.
