Antique Kilmarnock Drinking Fountain

Cast by the Kennedy Patent Water Meter Co.

Ltd. of Kilmarnock, Scotland, now known as

Glenfield & Kennedy Ltd.  The maker’s name is

stamped onto the backplate;

T. Kennedy Patentee / Kilmarnock. c.1900

The cast iron backplate has straight sides with moulded

arches at the top and bottom of the structure.

A bas-relief inscription requests patrons to

Keep The Pavement Dry (civic virtues such as temperance

were often extolled in inscriptions on drinking fountains).

A central push button released water from a shell

motif spigot into a fluted demi-lune basin.

A galvanized cup, originally suspended by a chain,

captured drinking water from patented self-closing taps.

Dimensions: 22″ x 12″ x 7″

$345
