This is an French vintage garden water tap feature bought at a traditional French brocante market. This is not the reproduction aluminium versions of these water taps. This is a vintage or antique cast iron water tap weighing over 20kg which will be at least 80 years old, probably more. Taps like these were historically used in French town and city streets to supply fresh water. They either had the a plumbers merchants name or the towns coat of arms. This one has the coat of arms also called a crest for the town of Amiens which is where this was sourced. This is a city in Northern France 75 miles North of Paris. This has, in the past, been refurbished with a coat of black hard wearing metal paint (with a few chips and marks as shown). It now has a fresh brass water tap fitting so it can be used as a garden tap. It is a standard 15mm UK fitting so just needs attaching to a water supply for a stunning one off garden tap feature. This is an old used item so has some signs of age, wear as shown and to be expected from an item which has likely been used outdoors. All the items we sell are used or vintage and will show signs of a previous life. This is part of their unique French shabby chic appeal. See our website vintage shop selling over 300 unique, vintage and up cycled French finds for your home and garden including more vintage garden pieces, (aluminium milk churns, metal cart wheels and vintage plant shelving), all sourced from markets across France.
