Rare antique Black Forest hand carved holy water font dating to 1850-1870. Unique and impressive piece measuring 18" high by 11" wide. The cross is adorned with intertwined oak leaves and acorns. Below the cross is a carved font and this entire piece is removable from the bottom portion (see photo). The base is intricately carved with oak leaves, acorns, branches, and the most wonderful lamb which is symbolic of Christ. The entire piece both front and back is carved and decorated. It is in overall excellent condition for a delicate piece of this age. There is an old repair to the small branch on the right side (see photo).
