Upper right corner: two stream gods leaning upon a vessel from which water pours. A variation of the design.

Bottom right, a shell is fastened to an oblique side of the pavilion. The water pours from the mouths of two dolphins the mouths of which are held open by mermen. Made in: Rome, Italy. Date: 1800s.
