Old marble holy water font
Hi folks. Hoping someone might have some tips for me. 30 years ago, I worked for a college in San Francisco. The school was housed in former Catholic middle school, complete with chapel. When we moved in, tucked away in a boiler room covered in slopped latex paint was this:
It's solid marble holy water font and Carrera if I'm not mistaken. They were going to throw it away! I said uh-uh and took it home, spent a couple of days gently removing the paint and it's been with me ever since.
It's grown pretty grubby over the years and I'm wanting to get it cleaned. Is this something I should have professionally done or can I do it myself? It also has some damage just below the basin. Would it be worth having it repaired?
Thanks for any tips!
