Fountain, Ropner Park, Stockton-on-Tees - List Entry

  • Description

    "....a three-tiered spray fountain. The octofoil lower basin is set into a concrete base. The outer rim of the basin has a repeating pattern of passion-flower rosettes separated by scrolled features with a central daisy flower motif. Small projecting pipes feed an outer basin enclosed by a circular concrete wall. A central cylindrical shaft is mounted on a square concrete base at the centre of the lower basin; it is decorated with an ivy-leaf upper frieze and four reliefs of two alternate scenes: one a squirrel on an oak branch holding an acorn and accompanied by a bird and a dragonfly; the other a putto wearing a campanula flower as a hat and sailing a boat crafted from a leaf. Around this shaft are four columns with chamfered and stopped octagonal bases and foliated shafts and capitals...."
