A spout for shooting a small stream of water into the air in an arc, with a basin for the water to land in and go down a drain. The idea is to make it easy to get a drink of water without needing a cup.

Modern ones have refridgeration units inside to make sure they have cold water for anyone who uses it.

Also called water fountains, and in some small places of the USA, bubblers.
