Description

The baptismal font in St David’s Cathedral, Hobart, was made by local craftsmen to the design of English architect George Frederick Bodley (1827-1907). The cathedral was designed in 1865 by Bodley. Like the cathedral, the baptismal font is in the Gothic Revival style, particularly the blind arcading design of the font’s base featuring tracery and pointed arches.
