Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your Alfred Meakin pitcher and basin.

Could you very kindly attach a photo of it and one of the mark on the base as so much of the value of an item such as this is the artistic merit of the form and decoration.

Many thanks,
Robert.

PS. Once you have the photos in your computer (if you are using a smart phone camera, just email them to yourself) it's then a simple matter to attach them. Just click on the paperclip icon, located above the text box where you are typing to me. If there's no paperclip, click on the "Add files" tab.

If you get stuck go here for help.

Alternatively, if you can collar a passing teenager with an iPhone they would have photos posted here in about two minutes. Thanks R.
