Victorian era, Napoléon III era (c.1850-70) catholic holy font for home, as original with a silk velvet covered 1/2" wood plaque, edges beveled, repeating the intricately worked bright brass cathedral frame which sets off that hand painted porcelain plaque. Slightly convex, and beautifully preserved, you know it was treasured well. The shell holy font is cast metal. Full measurements noted on photos, but it is 9.25" tall, large in size.

Very good to excellent condition for age and type, with only the loss of some of the blue silk nap from the velvet fabric. All original, clean and no scent to it, a lovely remnant of life's daily devotionals of mid-1800s France. No chips, hairlines, cracks to the porcelain plaque, and a lovely image of the Virgin Mary, as Madonna.
