This fountain was produced for the Great Exhibition of 1851. The Great Exhibition provided the Coalbrookdale Company with the opportunity to produce large-scale dramatic pieces that would ensure their artistic legacy. The fountain stood in the north transept of the Crystal Palace, in front of the 60-foot wide ornamental gates that were also produced by Coalbrookdale. The fountain was subsequently purchased by Wolverhampton Corporation for £150 in 1853.
