|Chinese bronze 5 claw dragon water fountain - Qing dynasty?|

Did a quick search as I'm not familiar with Severo Calzetta da Ravenna.
If it was a work by him, that would be quite a find. But, it looks like from what I read that his works are pretty small in size.
Since he was active in the 1500's in Italy, that would predate this style of Chinese dragon which in my opinion is designed in the manner of the Qianlong period (late 1700's).
I'm fairly confident that my fountains are early to mid 20th c.
But, you got me looking around again for other sources as to where and when they were made, so thanks!
