This Royal Haeger young boy fountain piece is a pretty scarce item. Haeger produced the pottery, and the Randall Company, which produced water pump mechanisms, distributed them.  The fountain is listed in the 1950 catalog in Garmon and Frizzel's book on page 101. He stands nearly 14" high by 7.5" in diameter at the base. He is shown in a large, flat bowl, which we do not have, just the fountain boy himself.  He is glazed in a fabulous Green Briar glaze, which is the nicest representation of this glaze we've ever seen. There is a factory hole in the watering can spout to hold the pump tubing.  The original tubing and pump are not present.  He was probably not used for his intended purpose as there are no rust marks.  He does have a superficial chip under the base of the watering can, and three surface glaze chips in the foliage, which were colored over long ago, and all are shown in closeup photos. He is unmarked, but well documented in the reference book. Despite the surface nicks/chips, this young fountain boy presents with a killer glaze!
