Well head. Late C18/early C19. Limestone with wrought-iron overthrow. Italian.
The drum is carved with foliage, crockets and 4 heads; the octagonal rim has a
cable moulding. The simple overthrow has some scroll work and supports a pulley.
Probably an early C19 insertion into the innovatory flower garden designed in
1771 by the Reverend William Mason, author of "The English Flower Garden", for
Lord Nuneham, afterwards the 2nd Earl Harcourt.
