Stunning antique hand carved large crucifix and holy water font is the most elaborately carved we've had or seen. Over 18.5" tall, and the base is a large 10" wide and nearly 6" front to back. A bird protects its nest (the holy water font) from an approaching lifelike lizard. The cross is ivy-vine draped and the entire piece is in exceptionally fine condition as you can see.

Very good to excellent condition for age and type, remarkably unscathed by time, (c.1850-70) and while that foreleg of the lizard is chipped, really nothing else to report on this one. RARE! Measurements also noted on the photos.

Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time.
