The baptismal font and bowl

The baptismal table is made from sculpted and gilded wood in late baroque style, and has richly ornamented legs. A small angel sits on the pedestal, supporting the table top.

The baptismal table is believed to have been made at Burchard Precht's workshop in Stockholm in the late 17th century. The silver baptismal bowl was made by Johannes Meijding in Stockholm, and according to an inscription was given to the chapel by Queen Ulrika Eleonora in 1728.
