Fabulous antique Swiss marked Black Forest 14 7/8" wall hanging benitier or Holy water font, a wonderfully carved plaque with foliate crucifix and seashell shaped water reservoir! Yes, this would have been a wall hanging devotional piece, the seashell at the bottom holding a bit of blessed water. Not sure if I'd put any water in there as it might eventually damage the wood but what a wonderful decorative piece! Marked in script on the back, very faint but you can definitely see 'Geneve'. Great alongside old carved Christ figures and other Black Forest treasures. Priced to move quick so don't hesitate! Thanks!

Very good condition. No chips, breaks or damage to note other than a tiny leaf tip or two winding up the crucifix. See pictures for measurements.
