Title:The Baptismal Fonts of Devon. Part 4
Originator:Clarke, K. M.
Summary:Font at St Petrock's parish church in South Brent. Modified honeysuckle ornament; the subdivisions of the honeysuckle are separated instead of touching. The bounding lines are single instead of double. There is a wide cable twist below the rim, saw tooth at the foot of the bowl, and it is made of red sandstone. The bowl of the font is decorated with anthemion, or conventional greek honeysuckle, a type of font peculiar to the south west.
