SX 45 SE MAKER-WITH-RAME MOUNT EDGCUMBE COUNTRY PARK
7/180 Fountain about 12 metres south of
Mount Edgcumbe House
Fountain formed from re-used materials, including 2 bronze dolphins set on a granite
pier, sandstone rubble walls surmounted by a small sarcophagus. Probably
constructed early C20.
The rubble wall encloses the fountain to the rear, and has a round-headed niche; in
front, the dolphins are set on a granite pier, which is a re-used window mullion.
The stone sarcophagus has a segmental pediment with acroterial ornaments, central
medallion held by winged figures. The dolphins were formerly the hot and cold water
taps in the bath which was built in the late C18 at the rear of the English Garden
