St. Peter ad Vincula, Font and cover
St. Peter ad Vincula, Font and cover
The cover looks modern, but the guide book dates it to the 18th century. The font itself dates from 1200, and stands now on a 15th century base inscribed with the opening lines of the Ave Maria.

I was interested in the use of a salt-glazed pot for the flowers, as salt-glazed pottery would have been one of the major items of trade when the village was founded.

The font lies between the South and North door. During a baptism both doors would have been open to allow original sin to exit via the North (devil's) door.
