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 this antique white font from Italy.

    A Truly Blessed Holy Water Font

    I absolute love this holy water font; as other reviewers have stated it is simple and elegant. But it is also extremely sturdy. We just came through a 7.0 earthquake here in Anchorage, and my font didn't fall off the wall - it was launched across the room onto a hard floor. I was stunned to find that it not only wasn't broken, it wasn't even chipped. It is a truly beautiful and VERY well made font!

    Daily Blessing

    This is a beautiful holy water font. The size is just right for a doorway or small niche, and it is very nicely detailed and of good quality. The design, to me, is spiritually uplifting and the perfect representation of making the sign of the cross in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

    Antique White Holy water font

    This is a beautiful holy water font. I plan to give as a gift for someone being baptized into the Roman Catholic Church at Easter.

    Perfect for my home

    I purchased two of these for my home, one for the front entrance and one for the bedroom. I was pleasantly surprised by their beauty and craftsmanship. They are lovely and although the basin is small, that just reminds me to maintain awareness of my practice of using holy water. The color is a pretty ivory color, and the monochromatic color makes the texture and relief of the piece even more beautiful.
