This is a circa 1870-1880 wood and marble sink
with some original brass hardware. This would have been
a household sink for a high end homeowner since indoor plumbing was only
available to a few during those years. Most homes has a similarly shaped
piece of furniture but it was called a 'dry sink' where a pitcher and bowl
was used where your sink is now. The lower portion was used as the commode.
A chamber pot was placed in the bottom and a latched door would have originally been on the back
so that the maid could remove the pot from the back. This piece has a current value of $400 retail.
