A SMALL COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE SILVER AND OBJECTS OF VERTU

Venetian silver holy water font - Italy



silver holy water font Venice A silver holy water font with a pair of birds drinking on a fountain. The holywater font has no hallmark but, having same provenance of holy water font previously described, its origin is surely Venice. This item was, likely, of later production (mid 19th c.), having a typical 19th century appearance lacking of 18th century reminescences.
The holy water font is 7 1/2 in. (cm. 18) high and 3 3/4 in. wide (cm. 9) and belonged to my mother's family, living in Pellestrina, once a fisherman's island of Venetian Lagoon.

This item is not for sale, but most of my pieces were bought through the Internet. On the right bar of this page there are some advertisings of websites of silver and antique dealers
