In 1927, Carl Milles designed the marble and bronze 'Diana Fountain' in conjunction with the architect Tengbom for the central court of the new building for the Swedish Match Trust, Stockholm. A marble fountain basin was installed in the center of the yard with a bronze fantasy of Diana rising from the center and with sleeping animals 'resting' on the surface of the water. A marble colonnade at one end of the courtyard was defined by a bronze boar and a doe leaping out from each side. The present bronze is a reduction of this boar. Another example of the model signed only with the artist's initials and without a foundry mark was sold in these Rooms, May 26, 1988, lot 303.
