Marvelous Pair of French Porcelain Sinks - For Sale
Marvelous Pair of French Porcelain Sinks
What a superb pair of 19th Century French porcelain sinks! These sinks were purchased in the South of France and are absolutely amazing. Flawless white porcelain with a blue floral transferware pattern, textured on each side of the faucet; ideal for a bar of soap. Having the original bronze hardware with each faucet head shaped into a griffin and a porcelain knob that reads "Froid." This is French for "cold." Also with the bronze stopper and chain, and 6 vents for water drainage. They are both marked on the back with the maker's seal that mimics "Dieu Et Mon Droit," the motto of the British Monarch. This motto refers to the divine right of the Monarch to govern and is said to have first been adopted as the royal motto of England by King Henry V in the 15th century. The motto is French for "God and my right shall me defend." These sinks are in overall pristine condition and have been preserved very well. Circa around 1860. 23.5W X 18D X 16H.
