Holy Water Font Italian Pewter (Peltro)
These are two very lovely Italian holy water font. The material is pewter and they are from the late 18th century.
My husband and I come into these beautiful antiques while we were in Ravenna, Italy. We bought these from an antique shop in the city centre of Ravenna.
The two items have almost similar design, but they are not exactly the same. Thus, we think that these two are not a pair.
The seller told us that the materials is pewter and that they are from the late 18th century. And they are of neoclassic style.
I would have thought that these holy water fonts are used probably in individual homes.
They serve as examples of religious antiques from the late 18th century in neoclassic style.
