H: 183cm (72")W: 77cm (30.3")D: 50cm (19.7")


An unusual Victorian cast iron washstand, the bevelled mirror back surmounted by a putto and flanked by urn topped columns over a foliate cast panel, two small lower shelves and inset with three pottery tiles, the white Carrara marble top over a folaite cast apron, the end supports with putto holding floral garrlands and joiined by a lower bar stretcher. Bears cast Restistration marks for 1899.

This would make an excellent bathroom sink. The marble surface lifts off and could be cut to make a sink aperture. The tiles are easily removed from the back and could replaced to suit a different colourscheme - Delft tiles would be a good option.

In good, restored condition, the lower bar stretcher is replacement.
