Baroque Fountain in Shape of Putti. Made of lead, sitting on top of the original sandstone base. The water comes out of the vase. Has in all likelihood been part of a larger fountain. In the 18th century, lead was a common material to use for fountains. An expensive material, but extremely durable and easier to mold in fine detail.
