Boy and Frog Fountain

Description:

The Boy and Frog Fountain is an original bronze and Verona marble fountain by Raffaello Romanelli. On the base is a faun on a dolphin. The bowl & pedestal are rose colored Verona Marble. Purchased in 1929 in Florence, Italy, this fountain has impressed and amused visitors to the Plaza. A young boy is delighted and surprised by the shower he receives from a friendly bronze frog.
