JAFFE FOUNTAIN IN BELFAST
The memorial was originally commissioned by Mr Jaffé's sons - one of whom was Sir Otto Jaffé, who later became Lord Mayor of Belfast.

In 1933 it was moved to a site at Botanic Gardens, on the embankment near King's Bridge, where it remained for more than 70 years, neglected and largely ignored until recently. The developers of Victoria Square facilitated its restoration and relocation in conjunction with the owners of the monument, Belfast City Council.

In 2007, the monument was taken to England and given a full-scale restoration by Telford-based company Eura Conservation, which had to dismantle it piece by piece because of its fragile condition. Extensive research and scientific analysis was also carried out on the various layers of paint in order to uncover the colours the original designers intended.
