Vintage Italian Pottery Figural Lion Head Tile Fountain Spitter by Tesoro

$ 125.00
This is a handsome highly dimensional lion head tile made in Italy by Tesoro. It is slip cast and the details hand finished to make the design crisp. It measures 5 3/4" square and sits 2  1/2" proud from the surface. The back is marked Tesoro and dated 1992. Although the mouth on this piece is solid it looks like it was made so that the back can be cut to use this as a fountain spitter / spout. It remains in excellent condition with no chips or repairs. It has a firing line going from the central opening in the back to the base of the lion's beard.
A great item to hang with a plate hanger, have framed, or installed into a wall. pool or fountain.
