This 19th Century French repousse copper lavabo on an original walnut wood stand has a coat of arms on the front of the upper storage tank where the water is held. A bronze spigot would have allowed the water to empty into the bottom basin by turning it to the right or left. The upper tank and lower basin have nice linear repousse motifs which match throughout, indicating they are original to each other. Lavabos were originally used for washing your hand, but today they are beautiful accessories anywhere is the home. Although we have found some lavabos over the years, this is the first that we've found on it's original wood mount.

CONDITION: Very good antique condition; lid of upper tank slightly bent; walnut wood stand shows old traces of woodworm.
