This stunning Holy Water font was carved from solid French white oak along the German border in the Black Forest region, with an ironworker's tools depicted just above the font's reservoir below and a ladder with floral bouquets above apparently depicting the gardening or fruit-grower's trade. A stunning hand-painted porcelain icon of Jesus takes center stage with his sacred heart shining forth.
Circa 1880s.
