I love this old enamel wash basin – not just for the fact that it’s nice and large, or because I think it’s got quite a bit of age to it – really it’s that lovely blue enamel that I’m so taken with! Isn’t it just lovely? It’s quite unusual to find these basins in a colour, let alone such a nice colour! It’s also unusual to see these basins with handles – they’re normally designed so that you carry them by their rims, so it’s nice to see the addition of the handles – it makes the basin stand out. Obviously there’s some wear to the enamel, but it’s still water tight, and aesthetically I don’t think the damage detracts at all from its good looks – if anything, it adds to its character!
