Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The impressive and highly decorative design is inspired by the Italian Baroque marble fountains, such as Trevi in Rome. The base is modelled like a stormy sea, applied with raising cast seahorses surmounted by nereides, dolphins, sea gods, mermaids and crabs.
The centerpiece is massive and extremely heavy (70cm wide, 13780 grams of solid silver), very unusual as the domed base is mounted with an electric pump providing light and water, transforming the centerpiece in a fully working fountain that can be filled with water.
