Wonderful and traditional benitier or Holy water font consisting of a silvered Christ in a large shell with a smaller shell to hold the holy water. 
There is a crack from the bolt securing the font, which is reflected in the price. I felt this was so charming you may like to own this quirky Quintessentially French treasure, even if it has been slightly damaged over the years. 
lit measures approximately 6.5" long and 3.5" at widest point
