Description

This is a lovely example of a traditional northern France washstand, dating from the late 19th Century. I bought it many years ago from the house in France where it had lived for over 60 years. This is a reluctant sale but I have no where for it now. 

There are  two narrow but deep drawers to the front with pretty metal knobs and a gently curving towel rail. There is a shelf below - again metal. 

Though a little 'shabby' and with bits of rust in parts, the overall condition is sound and all the ironwork is in good order - none of it has cracked or broken away.

The mirror is easily lifted from the slot at the rear and the unit looks lovely with or without it as the photographs show.

The jug and bowl came with it and so are included in the sale. 

Dimensions

Height: 57cm
Width: 76cm
Depth: 50cm  (91cm to the top of the mirror)
