A rare, reclaimed, original mid-Victorian transfer print ceramic circular sink C.1880. The sink has a very pretty and traditional Georgian style design with blue transfer print depicting classical Chinese style designs and intricate borders around the sink edge and around the plug hole. The design and colour are clear. The sink design is named PANORAMA and this is printed on the outer edge of the sink. The sink is suitable for mounting on top of or sunken in to a base and is of a suitable size for a cloakroom or smaller bathroom. The sink has old waste pipes and there is some leaking around the plug hole waste pipe and purchaser may wish to replace the seal or fully replace the pipework to ensure it no longer leaks. Please note: the sink has no plug. The sink does have some damage and signs of age, as expected of antique items. The sink sustained some damage that has been repaired. The cracks can be seen within the bowl but they have been repaired and the bowl will hold water without leaking (after the pipes or seal are replaced- depending on what is required to stop the leak near the plug hole). The plug area has some discolouration. There are some scratches with some stains and some further stains on the outer edges of the sink but these may improve with cleaning. There are some small areas with fading to the transfer print. There is some rust around the pipework. The glaze has some crazing and cracking. Please see pictures for condition details. The sink is a beautiful example of Victorian design and it would make a truly stunning addition to a bathroom.
