The baptismal bowl both in the mirror and on the wide collar has been given die-cut figures of a doe on the run. The tondo in the centre of the mirror was decorated with a scene of the Annunciation - Mary kneeling on the right and an angel hovering in the depths on the left, with a dove flying between them. The bowl was in the vault before the Second World War.
