This early tin sink is in the best condition given the presence of its original mirror with gilt over tin and the soft metal gilt faucet maintaining its turn handle which is almost always missing. The turn handle is in the design of a fleur de lis and the back of the sink has a water reservoir. The sink has four turned wire legs and a tin lower shelf. It also maintains almost all of its original cream paint. The overall measurements of the sink is 4 1/2" wide X 5" deep X 7" high. The sink height is 3 1/2".
This listing does include the wonderful treen displayed with the sink. Because of the fragile and perishable nature of treen it is most difficult to find especially in this wonderful condition. There are nine pieces which include a pitcher and bowl, slop pail, and three covered jars. They have a base color of light blue with navy blue trim. Over time the blue base appears to be more of a grey color. The pieces are in excellent condition with the exception of the slop pail, which has lost its handle. The bowl measures 2 1/8" diameter, the pitcher is 1 1/2" high and the slop pail is 1 1/4" diameter. Finding all these German pieces from the end of the 19th century and in this condition is wonderful.
