This antique fountain head depicts a partially nude woman mermaid (naiad) holding a large fish that forms the spout of the fountainches The figure is nicely rendered with good detail. Notice the water lilies in her hair, her pretty face and her unusual, forked fishtail. It would be a lovely addition to any garden or courtyard. This feminine piece retains the original wonderful old patina in a warm brown.
