Unique Medical Washstand (SOLD)

Unique Medical Washstand

This medical washstand dates back to 1930, June the 6th ..according to the newspaper packed behind the mirror!

Although it looks absolutely beautiful, the tap is ‘after-market’, as there would have been a basin with a drain hole and plug. Traditionally, water would be poured from a pitcher and the pitcher placed empty under the drain. When the patient was finished washing/brushing, the plug was pulled and the dirty water would drain out into the pitcher.

A beautiful piece with loads of patina and character – very unique and rare (stands 1.7m tall).
