A most attractive and intriguing octagonal-shaped Font, carved from time-blackened Old York Stone. The Font was found buried at the threshold of an early 17th century stone cottage at Bradley Bar, near Huddersfield. This lovely old Font, now acting as an attractive trough or planter is mounted upon a huge, rectangular block of Old York Stone. Due to the pair of stunningly-carved Quatrefoils, this identifies the stone block as being of ecclesiastical origin. Old Yorkshire has many old Abbeys, Priories and ancient Churches. This architectural combination of Old York Font and Old York Ecclesiastical stone block would make a superb centre-piece in either a lawn or on a courtyard.
