Baptismal font

Catalogue note author
Paulina Kluz


A stone baptismal font was probably created in the second half of the 18th century, most probably after 1748 - as it was not mentioned in the visitation records from that time. In 19th century, a cover was added. The baptismal font has the form of a chalice, which is the most popular shape for this type of work. Elements such as pear-shaped nodus or goblet decorated in a way imitating chasing indicate that it may have been created in the 18th century.
