Ornate antique dollhouse enameled metal lavabo by Marklin is painted in an olive green strie pattern with maroon pinstripes and edging. The water reservoir above has a hinged lid with attached spigot.
Lavabos were used in kitchens prior to indoor plumbing. They hung on the wall and had a water reservoir with spigot that when opened, poured water into an attached bowl for hand washing etc. A hole in the bottom would allow the water to be emptied into a bucket underneath.
Made in a large 1" scale, it measures 4 7/8" t x 2 1/2" w x 1 1/2" d and is in very good condition with just a few tiny areas of paint loss and a missing handle for the spigot.
