Silver 800/000, weight 288 g Good condition

Elegant pair of finely chiselled holy water fonts made of silver 800, finely chiselled and embossed. In the upper part there are two angels holding a cross, the water jar at the bottom is embossed with dots, juxtaposed ribbing, and floral motif. In the middle there is the symbol of Divine Providence: an eye within a triangle, surrounded by rays of light. This symbol, generally associated with Freemasonry, is somewhat unusual in a font and it can give rise to numerous interpretations. On the back they have a small hook to hang them on the wall.
Origin: a wealthy private collection in Venice
On the back the silver mark 800.
It will be shipped with careful and professional packaging.
Safe and tracked shipping throughout Italy, Europe and the rest of the world at reasonable rates.

Dimensions (each):
- length 19 cm
- Width 9 cm
- depth 4 cm
- weight 139 and 149 g
