B1515 - SOLD
This is a stunning antique French bènitier dating from about 1920. It is a striking piece and would be perfect for a special contemplative niche.
It has an oval decorative metal frame within which is a burr veneer panel in rich mid brown tones. Mounted in the centre of the panel is a beautifully detailed cast metal disc bearing the image of the Virgin Mary in profile. It is signed Ruffony.
Beneath this is the glass Holy water stoup. It is held in place with a decorative metal strap.
On the back of the bènitier is a loop for hanging it on a wall.
The bènitier is in good antique condition. The metal has mellowed to a lovely old gold hue. We have left the burr as we found it but it would polish further if required.
The bènitier measures :- 27.5 cm (10.75 inches) high x 20.5 cm (8 inches) wide.
A fabulous religious piece to display and use and another divine antique French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
N.B. We have photographed it with other decorative religious pieces listed in our other items.
