This beautiful Italian font features an antique white cross and would be perfect in a catholic home. The use of holy water fonts is a very old tradition in the Catholic Church. The earliest fonts were actually fountains and the Christian faithful would wash their hands and feet in the water before entering the church, likely derived from an older Jewish rite. There is a writing by Paulus Silentiarius from about 590 which describes people keeping water from one such fountain in pitchers in their homes. The use of holy water developed from the 4th through 9th century, when the custom of sprinkling the congregation at Mass with water from a pot began.  If you are looking for an alternative gift for a loved one in your life, why not give someone a spiritually encouraging gift, such as a holy water font? Or establish the tradition of keeping a private holy water font in your own home with one this antique white font from Italy.

Beautiful in its simplicity

Review: This is really a pretty font. I thought I wanted something more colorful, but the antique white blends well in any room. It also has a nice basin, rounded and not too small like some others I've seen. In fact, I like it so much, I'm purchasing another for a Confirmation gift.


Review: I put it in a central location and even though it is not flashy, it is getting much use.
