Cast-iron water pump, c.1870, with foundry mark, banded shaft, fluted neck, cap, finial and spout, and curved pumping handle.

Appraisal

The decorative detailing, such as the banding and fluting, provide artistic detailing to this functional water pump. Water pumps played an important social and functional role from the mid nineteenth century onward, providing a communal water source in the village.
