Faucet

The faucet is complete. It consists of three linked parts: spout, body and tail. The spout is square in cross-section and slopes downwards; its end is straight and it is surmounted by an almost vertical triangular-shaped stop. The body is circular in cross-section; at its junction with the beak, it features a cylindrical, light-sided key holder, the ends of which protrude from the body, and which is fitted with fastening fins molded onto the beak and body. The tail is conical with a straight tip, and its outer surface is ringed along its entire length, except near its rear end, which has only two grooves; the decoration is molded and incised. The molded decoration models the body of the tap, with its horse-like head and elongated cone-shaped tail. The body is also adorned with two groups of incised rings.
