Bequest of Mrs. F. MacDonald Sinclair (Jennie H. Sinclair)
The dome of the font was formed with the Magoun patent method. Developed by Joseph Magoun of the New England Works in 1847, eliminated mold marks by using a hinged, three-part mold to form the body of the font and a one-piece cylindrical mold to form a cylinder that was then tooled to form the dome.
