Robinson Iron Restores Residential Fountains, Too!

Luke Robinson Fountain 1 Comment

There are several pictures on the Robinson Iron website of large, municipal fountains we have restored. But did you know RIC can restore smaller fountains (or anything cast metal), too?

The pictures below guide you through the restoration of a Roman Fluted Magnus with Basin. The fountain had been the victim of harsh chemicals and overall neglect.

The new homeowner who inherited the fountain with the house called Robinson Iron to refurbish the pieces.

How did it turn out? See for yourself! Thanks for visiting!
