This beautiful antique black forest carved holy water font, or benitier has a lovely patina. The frame has a real feeling of age about it and surrounds the cartouche holding Christ on the cross with swirling scrolls.

The figure of Christ is very well carved with fine details such as the visible ribs and the carefully sculpted face.

The back board of the cartouche appears to have once been red velvet but the natural dye has faded it to brown.

The piece includes much evidence of it's longevity such as cracking of the wood, all forming part of it's beauty.

This piece measures 15 1/2" tall and 5" wide.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions.

Thanks for looking!
