Found this at the estate sale of a woman who collected a variety of religious items. It is a wall hanging holy water font with a very detailed relief of madonna and child. "Ave Maria" is embossed on the bottom.

The back of this is marked with an embossed oval with the word "Kavserz" and numbers that appear to be 4254. I am unsure of what type of metal this is made of. In researching "Kavserz", I was only able to find one other item marked with this and it was a similar looking plate, made of pewter. This feels almost like a heavy aluminum, but could be pewter. I am just not sure. It looks like the surface is painted a metallic silver. A magnet does not stick to it, but that doesn't help much because a magnet won't stick to aluminum or pewter.

With the research I've attempted to do, I believe this is European and is quite rare. The details are excellent, right down to the delicate facial features of the madonna and child. Lily flowers are also featured in the design. Check the photos and you'll see there is a little patina or paint wear.
The holy water font holds about 1/3 cup.

Truely a unique piece to add to your religious collectibles!
