Code 614-10 Pair of Antique Carved Stone Sinks (Stoups or Benitiers) from France, circa 1830

These antique French Gothic style white limestone (Pierre Calcaire) pieces are old holy water vessels (stoups or 'benitiers' in French) are from a small chapel in the Drome department about a 100 KM from Lyon. The basins are octagonal and have Gothic motifs throughout. We have made some steel display stands for them which are also available if needed. The interior of the sinks is very smooth from years of water rubbing the surface of the limestone.

Today, these wonderful vessels could be wall-mounted, resting upon a ledge, counter, or in stands and used as sinks. They could also be used in gardens or indoors for holding plants. It is quite rare to find a well carved old pair such as this.

CONDITION: Good. Wear consistent with age and use. Minor rubs, nicks, gouges, natural pitting to limestone..

Stone Dimensions: H=17, W=20, Max Depth of Stone=24 3/4
