Long Description:
The wooden font cover on the baptismal font in St. Michael & All Angels (aka Michael Parish Church) - Kirk Michael, Isle of Man. The ornately decorated cover is made of oak as is much of the furniture in the Sanctuary. It was probably made by Mr. J D Kelly, a very able wood-carver who lived and worked in Michael. Examples of his work are to be found in many Manx churches, and also overseas, where Manxmen have emigrated.

The baptismal bowl is set in an attractively decorated surround which sits atop an ornate pillar which is seated on an octagonal base.

The font is set to the right of the sanctuary when viewed from the body of the Church
