Antique Dollhouse Grain Painted Metal Lavabo by Marklin or Bing Late 1800s Large 1" Scale
In superb condition, this antique dollhouse grain painted metal lavabo is a wonderful piece to add to your early German doll house kitchen. Finished in warm brown, it has light blue pin stripes on the water reservoir and top edge of the bowl. The half round reservoir has a spigot on the bottom.
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 5" t x 3" w x 1 1/4" d and is in excellent condition with just a few tiny paint chips.
