Edith Barretto Parsons
The bronze figural fountain as a standing child with turtles, atop naturalistic base issuing streams of water from four figural spouts around the base, signed in the casting and dated 1919, stamped GORHAM CO. FOUNDERS OBDU, a choice example displaying a nice contrast and combination of naturally developed green verdigris and rich brown patina. The most recent owner installed Turtle Baby in the spring and had the figure removed in the fall, resulting in a desirable patina achieved only by time.
Measures 17 x 7 x 6 inches.
