FRENCH HAMMERED COPPER WATER FOUNTAIN HAND WASH BASIN LAVABO JEAN GOARDERE. Water was placed in the reservoir (top section with lid), then the brass taps were turned allowing water to flow into the basin, if mounted outside the sun it will even heat your water! Lovely and elegant antique French copper fontaine or lavabo used for washing hands complete with its oak wood display board. The reservoir has a solid copper bracket on the back for hanging either on its board or directly to a wall, a well fitting copper lid with two bronze/brass finials. The basin can be hung on its board from its two copper brackets.
Free standing under the reservoir. This lovely set is a true classic French item that could be put to many modern uses in the garden or home I have even seen these professionally plumbed into a downstairs cloakroom as a stunning show piece. The reservoir is in good solid condition tin lined inside , no holes, obviously given its age and passage through time some light scratches/blemishes but nothing serious, (See photos) it holds water and the taps turn and water flows, can be used indoors or out!
The Copper basin is also in good solid condition as above. The backing board is also in good solid condition. 42 cm(17) high inc tap/finial x 32 cm(121/2) at widest point x 23cm(9) deep.
