The Joseph Winn Fiske Foundry Company of New York City was the preeminent maker of garden fountains and other ornamental metal objects in the 19th Century. Fiske used an outside foundry and patternmakers for his objects which are highly collected today.
This attractive working fountain is cast of lead and zinc and depicts two children sheltering themselves with an open umbrella. The brightly colored enamel brings the piece to life, especially when the fountain is active and the water is flowing over their heads.
