Print description

This tin dish, which has been identified as a church bowl, could have been used during baptism or other liturgical activities, for example, as a priest’s washbasin, a so-called lavabo. It probably comes from one of the wooden churches in Kęty, which was demolished on the orders of the Austrian authorities. These churches were located on Świętokrzyska and Wszystkich Świętych streets. They were pulled down after a serious fire in 1797.

This tin dish, which has been identified as a church bowl, could have been used during baptism or other liturgical activities, for example, as a priest’s washbasin, a so-called lavabo. It probably comes from one of the wooden churches in Kęty, which was demolished on the orders of the Austrian authorities. These churches were located on Świętokrzyska and Wszystkich Świętych streets. They were pulled down after a serious fire in 1797.
The dish is made of tin; the shape resembles a vase. The base has a slightly widening edge, called the foot. The upper part of the vessel—the so-called flange—is made in a similar way, but it is more flattened than the foot. The centre of the vessel—called “the belly”—is evenly convex. Decorations run across it in the form of parallel lines of different widths. The base of the vessel is decorated in a similar way, but here, only thin lines were applied. The hand-engraved date, “1796”, and the initials, “IT” (which is probably the signature of the attendant who made the vessel), appear on the area of “the belly”. The handles were made in the Rococo style, giving them a slightly irregular shape.
