Italian marble font

font

I have an Italian marble font, 125 years old, available now for transfer. It's very heavy - it took six firefighters and a car engine hoist to move it from its original location in Langstane Kirk in Aberdeen to Garthdee Church in Aberdeen, from where it can be collected pretty much any time day, evening or weekend. It comes apart into top, base and pillars. More pictures and dimensions available on request.
