This rare Victorian-era cast-iron birdbath fountain was manufactured in the 1870s by Iske, a well-known nineteenth-century East Coast manufacturer of cast-iron ornamentation. Typical of the late-nineteenth-century Victorian style, the fountain is laden with effervescent decorations, including scampering turtles and frogs. The diagonal bands of color on the column are typical of Eastlake style, while the pointed arches on the upper pan are a nod to Gothic.
