Texas Capitol Fountain Lighted Ornament

Item #: 801022 In Stock
Texas Capitol Fountain Lighted Ornament


This elegant ornament depicts the fountain that sits to the South of the Capitol's main entrance. The elaborate, lighted, cast iron drinking fountain was originally installed in 1903, and was connected to one of the artesian wells on the grounds. The fountain provided continuously running well water and metal drinking cups hanging from chains. Convinced that the mineralized water possessed medicinal value, visitors hauled it away in bottles for the next 73 years. In 1928, a granite water fountain replaced the cast-iron fixture. Officials closed the well in 1980 due to more stringent water quality standards. A reproduction fountain, installed in 1996, provides water with a gentle step on the foot lever.

The ornament is finished in 24-karat gold with a replaceable LED light which will make your tree shine! Estimated battery life is 100 hours. Measuring at approximately 4 1/2 inches tall, this ornament comes with a gold ribbon for hanging and makes a perfect gift in its specially designed velvet-lined box. Proceeds support the ongoing preservation and interpretation of the Texas Capitol as well as exhibitions and educational programming at the Bullock Texas State History Museum. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Made in the USA.
