For centuries, fountains were an essential element of the Provencal lifestyle. These charming monuments were the sole water supply for small villages of the region and through the years, have come to symbolize the simple and soothing life of Provence. True to Provencal tradition, all of Exquisite Surfaces' reproduction fountains are hand-crafted in limestone by local artisans in Provence. All reproduction fountains are sculpted to order. Any custom design can be created.
