Today, we’re going to take a look at another set of fountains, but these are all of a type referred to as “spitting fountains”, and most of them are made of bronze from a company called Design Toscano.

Like the one shown here (which is the Medium-sized Single Dolphin Solid Bronze Garden Statue), most are stand-alone sculptures of animals that are cast in the traditional lost wax bronze method and are also piped for optional fountain and pond use.

(Lost wax casting, also known as cire perdue, is an ancient method of casting that dates back thousands of years, and has been used the world over. It is often used because it retains the fine detail of the original sculpture.)

I purchased the large Asian Dragon for my hill side water garden. It is a very dramatic addition to this garden room. Very detailed and well made. I love it and recommend it!” (Denise, Missouri)

The two traditional-looking fountains feature lions, while with the free-standing ones, you can choose from egrets, dolphins, manatees, frogs, alligators, dragons, cranes, ducks, fish, sea turtles, marlins, geese and even a mermaid:

Pump Kit BB-75240Note that most of the above items will require a pump kit, such as BB-75240 shown here.

This kit includes a submersible, re-circulating pump with a 12 ft. power cord, 4 ft. of vinyl tubing, connecting clamps, and a flow adjuster. Larger tubing is available for larger installations or deeper ponds.

Other pumps are also available from Design Toscano, should you require them.

The Four Lion Sculptural Fountain really is a very fine fountain and makes quite a statement in the garden. We’ve had ours for over 10 years and it is still going strong. Beware, it is very heavy and difficult to move, so be sure of your site.

So, which of these many beautiful Toscano Design garden sculptures / spitting fountains will you choose? If it’s any help, Mark’s favourite is the Monumental Five Dolphin Spitting Bronze Garden Statue, while Rae’s is the Three Entwined Dolphins Spitting Bronze Garden Statues.

    these fountains look simply beautiful and would certainly be excellent Feng Shui for any landscape either for home or business.
