Historic Fountains and Sculptures

Every fountain represents a certain time and culture. Good pieces do not lose their beauty and are still fascinating today. We offer these unique objects we found all over France, Italy and Switzerland.

We check the fountains for thightness and make sure that they are ready for use right after the delivery. Years of experience taught us, which well belongs to which garden - convince yourself of our projects on our homepage. We look forward to hearing from you.
