The Mermaid Fountain had not been cleaned or re-gilded for over 30 years, and with a thick layer of limescale and an uneven surface, it was in desperate need of restoration.
The bronze statue was rebuffed and polished with wax and the old layers of gold paint were removed and replaced with gold leaf. The fountain is now drained and cleaned every winter in order to prevent any future deterioration.
You can see the restored fountain by taking our recommended walk through the Formal Gardens and passing the Italian Garden’s viewing area.
