Baptismal font cover

Catalogue note author
Maria Działo


Baptismal font cover was made in the second half of the 17th century and it was transferred from the old John the Baptist church in Zembrzyce. It depicts a scene of the Baptism of Christ. The base of the cover is decorated with a motif known as "chasing" - characteristic in particular of the 16th and 17th century art, but repeated also in the 18th century. Unfortunately, archival sources do not reveal the author of the work.
