Isn't it amazing what you find at yardsales? Great lion's head fountain piece! Really like your other items too. The wooden chair/bench is really nice!

Great finds. While the lion head is indeed cool, I actually like the kettles more, myself.

That said, the real reason for my posting is that I am a bit alarmed by the placement of the lion-head fountain. All it will take is a small amount of deposits of calcium or algae or whatever forming on the water outlet to redirect a small trickle of water down the front of the placard and toward that power outlet. Hopefully it is a gfci protected circuit which 'should' prevent anyone grabbing that cable from getting zapped, but even a GFCI outlet can short out and cause a fire when doused with water.

Sorry for being the nay-sayer :(
