Details

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.

Love it


By:
Review: I wanted a Holy Water font for our house, without looking like I was trying to "show off" to visitors. This is absolutely perfect. I get Holy Water from my church (in a holy water bottle) and pour it in this every few days. The water does evaporate. I have it by my front door, and absolutely love it.

Excellent purchase


By:
Review: So happy with this font. It is solid and sturdy. I like its subtle simplicity. It does hold a small quantity of water which I prefer because we are a household of three people and don't need large amounts of the water daily. The water evaporates after 2-3 days (depending on how much you fill it) so I just refill from the 4oz holy water bottle I also purchased. We have it at our front door for easy access when coming or going and available for any guests who would like to use it.

Small and sufficient


By:
Review: This is a wonderful holy water font for a home. The font is beautiful and simple, making it a nice addition without being pretentious. My family has truly enjoyed the font in our home.

Bummed


By:
Review: I just love the look of this font, but it does not mount flush on the wall, it is very unstable. I will not purchase this one again. So bummed!

A Truly Blessed Holy Water Font


By:
Review: 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


By:
Review: 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.

Review: 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


By:
Review: 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.

Classic and elegant font


By:
Review: This was the perfect gift for my son due to the simple, classic elegance of it. I was looking for something that would be a reminder of his faith while away at college.

Review: I'm a little disappointed with my font. It does not hang flat against the wall and in turn it is always crooked. Other than that it is very nice but...the issue with the hanging is very upsetting with me.

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.
