|The Lily Font|
Barnard & Co., 1841
The Royal Collection
The Queen and Prince decided that their daughter should be christened in a new baptismal font and commissioned E.W. Smith of Barnard & Co. to create a magnificent silver gilt font adorned with water lilies which were considered symbols of purity.
The result is The Lily Font which has been used at every Royal christening since 1841. Perhaps it will soon act as a baptismal font for a new generation of Royals.
