What a rare find, this antique holy water font of fine gutta percha. Lovely image of Jesus and His Sacred Heart surrounded by flowers and vines in an overall cross shape; with nice bronze or metal shell attached for the holy water font, believed to be original. This lovely piece measures 6" tall and is 3 & 7/8" wide and is in good overall condition; we see one tiny chip on the outside edge of the cross timber, and a little age wear from being loved for so many years. We have never had a gutta percha religious item, they are extremely hard to find. This came to us from France.
