Antique Lead Statue/Fountain by The Bromsgrove Guild

£32,750.00

Bromsgrove Guild pieces rarely become available.  Here we have a lead statue/fountain by The Bromsgrove Guild – a sculpture depicting a semi naked classical boy in a standing pose and clad in loose drapes, clasping above his head a conger eel. On the circular base to the reverse is stamped ‘Bromsgrove Guild Worcestershire’. Water escapes from the mouth of the eel and has all the original tubing intact.

The Bromsgrove Guild (1898-1966) was founded by Walter Gilbert based on the principles of The Arts and Crafts movement. Employing highly skilled tradesmen they successfully secured the most prestigious commission, the main gates of Buckingham Palace. More high profile commissions followed, such as a large commission to fit out part of the luxury liner,’ Lusitania’, and the famous Liver Birds on the Royal Sun Alliance Building, Liverpool.
