Full Gift Description

This beautiful Our Lady and Child Holy Water Font is made from 5,000 year old black turf from Ireland’s deepest ancient boglands.

The turf for this gift is sustainably sourced from some of Ireland’s oldest boglands formed from partially decomposed vegetation, which has accumulated in waterlogged places for over five thousand years. The wet turf bog is fused using glue to create the mother and child font shape, then dried in a kiln and processed for any extra carving into a beautiful Celtic Gift.


Ready to hang by a metal hook on the back.

Approx dimensions: 8″ (l) x 4.5″ (w) x 2.5″ (d)

Approx weight: 450g

Colour: Jet black. Please allow for screen resolution and colour differences.

From the Black Bog Collection. Presented in an Island Turf Crafts box. The following note is included with this piece:

Island Turf Crafts

5000 years ago the Great Elk wandered through the forests and boglands. It was a land of sweeping mists and gentle rain and soft sunlight. A land of pagan carvings and mysterious rituals. A land where the soothing lilt of the harp drifted over cool, clear crystal lakes and rivers.

Capturing the very essence of that era, each one of these sculptures has its own story to tell which is as old as the bog itself.

The Our Lady and Child Holy Water Font is an ideal Irish Gift for:

  • Christening Gifts

  • Confirmation Gifts
  • New Baby Gifts

  • Birthdays Gifts
