HOLY WATER FONT Depicting SACRED HEART, CROSS and CHAINS White Glazed Bisque with Hand-Painted Gold Gilt
Bring back the tradition of blessing yourself and loved ones upon entering and leaving your home!
Very nice CATHOLIC HOLY WATER FONT. The beautifully crafted porcelain holy water font is hand-glazed with white glaze and highlighted with gold gilt. Designed with a hole on the top of the cross for hanging on a nail.
The body of the holy water font features gold gilt chains hanging from the Cross. In the center of the cross is a heart. A holy mandorla or aureola encircles the entire design. The mandorla is also highlighted gold gilt.
Although not marked, the font is reminiscent of German or French antique porcelain fonts. The holy water font measuring 5 ½” tall by 2 ¾” wide, is in good condition other than much or the gold gilt is worn. It has no chips or cracks. Designed with a hole in the top for hanging on the wall.
Perfect gift for many occasions. From baptisms, first communions, and confirmations, birthdays, Easter gifts, or house blessings, this font will encourage daily blessing and be treasured for a lifetime. Place in a nursery or child’s room to nightly bless your sleeping children.
*Holy water not included.
