Rare and original antique French religious holy water font with an in Meerschaum hand sculptured medallion representing the Holy virgin Mary, our lady of Lourdes with Bernadette at her knees and the text N.D de Lourdes (Notre Dame de Lourdes)

Mid 1800s, Napoleon III period

The highly detailed sculptured meerschaum has fabulous fine details, just think of the hours and hours of work!!

The black wooden frame has pretty shapes with a cross on top, it is in black

The font itself is made of porcelain
Around the meerschaum medallion there is a brass frame

The glass is dome shaped and hand blown

Much prettier in reality than on the pictures, believe me! The details are much more visible in reality, as it was quite hard to make good pics because of the domeshaped glass

All these details make it a really rare and original religious piece of art !!

There is a small hook on the back

These holy fonts are highly collectible !!

Sizes: 6.8 inches (17cm) high

In a very good condition, as shown on the pictures, some wear to the black patina of the wood, nothing serious and this does not detract from the beauty of this lovely piece of religious art

Perfect for the collector of religious art and / or holy fonts
