Long Description:
FR Cette fontaine en pierre à 4 canons opposés est surmontée d'une statue romaine.
Une plaque indique qu'elle a provient des "Fonderies d'Art du Val d'Oste". J'ai retrouvé le catalogue de cette fonderie ainsi que la statue (https://e-monumen.net/patrimoine-monumental/vo2_pl571-statues/) qui porte le nom de "L’Automne" et est l'oeuvre du sculpteur Moreau (Mathurin).
