A rare treasure, this hand carved crucifix holy water font in walnut is the work product of Gueret Freres (Gueret Brothers), famous France's furniture maker of the 19th century. The religious wall sculpture features a cross decorated with vine leaves. 

It has been signed on the back Gueret Freres Boulevard de la Madeleine Paris. Gueret Brothers opened a shop in 1863 at boulevard de la Madeleine and closed it 1870. So this Black Forest style benitier has been produced between 1863 and 1870. Gueret Brothers were reknown, the French emperor Napoleon III bought a barometer from them during an exhibition. 

Good antique condition with some normal signs of ages like chip on two leaves and one leaf was repaired (see photos). 
Please take a close look at the photos. It would be a perfect religious gift.
