Three Dancing Maidens

Wurlitzer Dancing Maiden Fountain (Gone)

Field review by the editors.

Burlingame, California

Three half-clothed water nymph Gibson girls frolic in a bronze fountain sculpture behind a row of stores.

Sculpted by German artist Walter Schott ~1910, the "Three Dancing Maidens" won a couple of awards before the Wurlitzer (organ) family purchased it in Germany and brought it to America. Moved with a Wurlitzer in the 1950s from Cincinnati, Ohio to Burlingame.

Another copy is in NYC.
