The Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Fountain

The Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Fountain was unveiled on the 5th of January 1900 by lady Sweet-Escott, the wife of the queen’s administrator, Ernest Bickham Sweet-Escott as a celebration of Queen Victoria’s reign.

The Fountain is of pure artistic value and is made of porcelain, decorated with intricate and elaborate patterns with a small water tap and basins on the three sides. Crowning the Fountain is a 30cm statuette of Queen Victoria, which is also believed to be the smallest representation of the Queen’s likeness in the world.

Not many people know that you can quench your thirst at this artistically quaint water fountain. Not only that but it’s a beautiful work of art to admire. 

Address: Independence Ave at the National Museum of History (Victoria, Mahe – Seychelles)
