Fine antique French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque era souvenir "benetier" or Holy water font in ornate reticulated brass with mother of pearl half shell font or basin and eglomise or reverse painted glass scene! This one showing a seaside and mountain or hilltop cathedral and is marked "Souvenir De N.D. (Notre Dame) De La Garde (Marseille). A wonderful piece, dating c. 1900, give or take a few years, it's worked into a lovely holy font with mother of pearl font/basin, pressed brass frame that is just over 6" in height.
Very good to excellent condition. No loss to the reverse painting, it's done on a slightly convex oval glass that has no chips or cracks. No damage to the frame or pearl font. See pictures for all measurements.
