BR-26 Lead Dolphin Mask
Our English lead dolphin mask can be provided as a wall plaque or piped to function as an interesting fountain head. It is typical of the later designs of the Arts and Crafts movement. The incorporation of oriental influences, particularly Japanese, in the late 1890s is also evident.
As Gertrude Jekyll the famous English garden designer pronounced firmly "There can scarcely be a doubt that the happiest material for our garden sculpture and ornament is lead." Lead has been used to decorate and shape English gardens for centuries. It's a wonderful and durable material that is naturally resistant to any type of corrosion and cracking as well as impervious to harsh winters, sea-salt air, and inclement environments. When left exposed to wind, weather, and time, it will develop a beautiful grey patina that will last generations.
