The use of the stoup began in the earliest centuries of the Christian Church. Many stoups were destroyed or disappeared during the French revolutionin 1789 and in following years.
Although not in general use today, these holy water stoups were passed down through the family and given as gifts on special occasions such as births, first communions, confirmations and weddings.
