All Saints Church Moulton POIs – Victorian Font

Placed in All Saints in 1719, it is allegedly based on a font in St James Piccadilly carved by Grinding Gibbons. Adam and Eve are represented either side of the column with the coiled serpent. The tree of life, decorated with fruit, continues around the basin along with depictions of Noah’s Ark, the escape of the Israelites out of Egypt, and two figures thought to be David and Goliath. Originally, the font was painted in bright colours. However, the congregation objected to the colours and they were removed. Traces of the paint still remain.
