Drinking Fountain

The drinking fountains at the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden were produced in the 19th century by the Fonderies du Val d'Osne, in France.

If you're a fluent Portuguese reader and you're interested in iron art, don't miss A Arte Francesa do Ferro no Jardim Botânico, by Eulalia Junqueira, a Memória Brasil publication available at the Garden's gift shop.
