Large ceramic wash basin bowl and pitcher set in excellent condition. Back in the day before indoor plumbing, every well-run household had a wash basin set on a wash stand, which was a sort of dresser with a towel rack at the back. They filled the pitcher with water from the kitchen pump,, then carried it to the bowl which served as a sink for washing up in the morning.
This bowl is deep. The handled pitcher sits inside the bowl or you can use each piece separately in the kitchen or dining room. Gray-white stoneware with many charming speckles. Vintage, made before 1980. It has mostly been on display for these past decades and has no signs of wear. There is a 1/4" imperfection deep inside the bowl that appears to have been there from the time when it was created. The host of dots and streaks and speckles are typical of stoneware, which I believe these to be. I found no chips or cracks. Potter's marks appear on the bottom of both pieces, as well as an indication that it was made in Portugal.
Dimensions:
Bowl diameter at top 10 1/2 inches
Bowl diameter at base 4 inches
Bowl height 5 1/2 inches
Pitcher height 7 1/2 inches
Pitcher diameter at widest point 6 inches
Pitcher diameter at spout 4 inches
