Jaffe Fountain - Victoria Square In Belfast

This wonderful 1870s drinking fountain which commemorated the life of one of Belfast’s Jewish benefactors, Daniel Jaffe, had long suffered neglect and vandalism. Eura documented the fountain, dismantled it and transported each element to Shropshire for repair. Replacements for missing components were cast from newly carved patterns or from existing components, fractured columns were repaired, and the drinking bowl was re-gilded. The entire fountain was cleaned, painted, and test-assembled before being replaced on site in the centre of Belfast.
