French antique holy water fount. The fount is hand enameled over bronze (champleve) . The inset porcelain is hand painted and fired. The water fount is large measuring 16 1/2" long by 10 1/2" wide and has a projection of 2 1/2". The bronze is mounted on a onyx slab and brass backed. The enamel has some wear as expected for its age, but no loss. We date the holy water fount circa 1840-60 legal antique.
