Does This Fountain Exist?

October 28th, 2010

Ever seen a cast iron fountain like this? There must be one somewhere, or this company, Mott Iron Works of New York, was better at making catalogs than they were at selling. Originally posted by areliczone on Collectors Weekly Show & Tell, Oct. 26th

Mott Iron Works Fountain

This fountain has a “frog base” and “one pan with frog and tulip.” Wow! Looks like there’s even a hole for a beaver to swim into at the bottom. Got to admit, the end of the Victorian Era could be pretty classy!

There’s a brief blurb on Mott Iron Works on Wikipedia… anybody know anything else about them?
