Description

This superb antique French benitier from the end of the 19th Century is part of my collection of antique Holy Water Fonts which came from Bourgogne, France. It is very large, 42cm tall, and in gorgeous condition. So often the velvet pile is completely rubbed off on these antique pieces, but as you can see from the photographs, there is very little loss of velvet pile. I think that it must have been stored away from light and handling for a long time to stay in such good shape. The red is perhaps a little faded but still strong. It is a heavy piece due to the its rare large size, 42cm tall and 23cm wide. So nice to see the original gorgeous blue on the inside of the font, goes wonderfully well with the deep red of the velvet.
