Fountain in Mellon Park

The sculptures on this whimsical fountain are by Edmond Amateis. The fountain has been carefully restored so that all the spouts are working again, and it looks almost as fresh as when it was installed at the Mellon estate.

Edmond Amateis was the sculptor who created this whimsical fountain for the Mellon estate. These pictures were taken in November of 2008 with a Kodak Retinette.

Maiden Statues by Edmond Amateis in the Broderie

These three maidens by Edmond Amateis originally stood in the walled garden on the Mellon estate, now Mellon Park, where Mr. Amateis also designed the fountain. They left empty niches behind them, but they have been happy here in Phipps for years, where they are a charming feature of the Broderie.
