  • Antique Icon like Gilt Bronze Mary and Child Jesus Plaque over a Holy Water Font
    Located in Lisse, NL
    Meaningful and perfectly hand-crafted antique church relic. This religious work of art dates from the earliest years of the 20th century and you could not wish for a better condition antique. This finest of holy water font plaques could not be in better condition, but that is also because it was all handcrafted out of the best materials only. Even the hand sawn, square nuts on the back are gilt. And the cross-like hook with the French Gothic fleur-de-lis ends with the ring on top (for easy mounting this gem to your wall) is another detail that shows us that no expense was spared when this antique was hand-crafted all those years ago. Whenever we find religious antiques of this quality and excellent condition, they usually were made for and used in either a church or a monastery (also, because that is where the budget was for the best quality pieces). The quality and the finish of this church relic really is among the best we have ever seen, but the quality of and the details in the sereen Mother Mary...
