18d Norton (Suffolk), St. Andrew's Church, Baptismal font, detail of base. Supporting the bowl are angels and winged hearts. At the corners of the base, clockwise, appear a wildman, goat, beast, and lion (typical heraldic animals) all with shields suspended on chest.  These must once have been painted with the family arms of those contributing to the cost of  the font.
