Rare Holy water font featuring Jesus with sunburst behind. Made of fully glazed ceramic, with  hand painted full color details, including colors to the face, stars, even Jesus' eyes.

Signed by David Johnston the famous Irish ceramic maker in Bordeaux which allows us to date it to mid 19th Century. Johnston ceased production in 1845 after being taken over by Vieillard and we've seen similar Johnston fonts from 1840.

Both back and front are glazed. The colors are still vivid though some of the gold stars have faded. there are small patches where the glaze has flaked away especially at the edges of the font and on Jesus' nose and several little chips at the back.

Total height: 30.5cm / 12"
Max width: 17cm / 6.7"

There is a string loop at the back so it can be wall-hung.

Thanks for visiting Cabinet de Merveilles!
