Quite a fea­ture

Cheshire Life - - Homes & Interiors -

Stand­ing al­most eight feet tall and mod­elled elab­o­rately with a putto seated atop a clas­si­cal urn with twin lion head spouts and han­dles in the form of fish-tailed myth­i­cal crea­tures, the whole sup­ported by a pro­ces­sion of putti play­ing mu­si­cal in­stru­ments, this foun­tain stands on a tri­par­tite acan­thus-dec­o­rated plinth set with fur­ther putti and three lion head ter­mi­nals. It was bought for £6,000 by a pri­vate buyer at Adam Par­tridge’s Mac­cles­field rooms, pre­sum­ably with the home to match.
