THIS IS A SUPERB BENITIER OF HOLY WATER FONT DISPENSER FROM THE SAVOY OR SAVOIE IN FRANCE. COMPLETELY HAND CARVED AND HELD TOGETHER IN PLACES WITH WOODEN PEGS THIS IS AN EXEMPLARY PIECE OF FRENCH SAVOYARDE FOLK ART.

THE CORPUS OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE CROSS IS DONE IN A MAGNIFICENT FOLKLIKE MANNER AND THE HOLY WATER CONTAINER IS IN THE SHAPE OF A HEART. THE CONDITION IS PERFECT AND THE WOOD HAS A NICE EVEN WARM HONEYED PATINA THAT ONLY COMES WITH AGE. THERE IS A SPOT ON THE TOP WHERE A SUSPENSION LOOP WAS ORIGINALLY PLACED.
