Provincial Town Fountain

Our History

Since 2002, renowned garden design and antiques authority, Michelle LeBlanc, sold these pieces through her iconic New Orleans garden gallery, French Fountains. Now, French Fountains has transitioned into a full time design, casting and procurement business, the French Casting Company. Michelle LeBlanc discovered the elements of our “French Fountain Collection” of hand-carved French limestone fountains in the village of Avignon in the south of France. For over 10 years our skilled artisans and fabricators have been creating exact replicas of these time-honored fountains. These meticulously crafted stone castings provide the timeless, old world beauty of an antique French fountain at a fraction of the cost. Designers and clients from all over the country have purchased our fountains for their enduring beauty.

The French Casting Company creates authentic, detailed replicas of 17th, 18th, and 19th century French fountains and garden-ornaments with beautiful aged finishes and exquisite details in our New Orleans warehouse. We are also New Orleans' premier source for antique European and American fountains and yard ornaments.

Staff

 

We employ several local artists to help us realize any project, from large commercial installations to planters for a small patio. Our staff hand patinates each of our creations to give them the gravitas of a centuries old piece. We can create pieces in number of mediums including cast stone, wood and metal.

 

In addition to new creations, we are experts at procuring just the right piece for your garden, from our sources all over the country, as well as internationally. We will help you bring your outdoor space to life.

 

We offer free design consultation. Contact us for help with your fountain, trellis, armillary, sundial, pergola, gazebo, or anything else you'd like for your outdoor decor.
