This miniature cast metal Holy Font is from a darling old church in the French countryside. 19th Century. Normally hanging in the entry foyer of the Nave of a church for use as a small vessel to hold the sacred Holy water for blessing upon entry into the worship area. In the center you can see the carving of a cross and an anchor. There is a bit of verdigris which adds to the character of this charming little piece. If it were in my home I would use it for match sticks next to a fireplace or for cue-tips in a bathroom.
Size: it is roughly 3 inches wide and 3 inches high
