Preservation Society of Newport County Fountain Reproductions


The Elms – Newport, RI



These three fountains grace the Sunken Garden at The Elms, one of the mansions owned by The Preservation Society of Newport County. Over time they deteriorated and many of the bronzes were destroyed or stolen. In 2000-2001, Robert and his team worked with the curator to replicate the missing figures and ornament and to restore the existing bronzes. The fountains were completely rebuilt reproducing all the original details. The Preservation Society of Newport County presented the 2005 Laurel Award to Robert Shure “in recognition of his outstanding service and meticulous skill and artisanship in restoring or replacing the Society’s lost or damaged statuary.”
