An English miniature baptismal, eight sided font in white mottled marble, circa 1860. 

 

In the 18th and 19th centuries, baptisms were ordered privately as status of high society. These portable, miniature fonts would be commissioned and kept in main halls or private chapels of great homes.

 

Great antique condition.

Could make a beautiful focal feature inside or outside, or as a bird bath.
