Fabulous find soft as a cushion 'Doug comme in coussin', a cut above your average bed pan! This is a Parisian bassin de lit. With elegant Art Nouveau inscription on each side.
Wonderfully solid manufacture and remains in good condition for its age, watertight but with the usual chips and signs of usage.
You can see I used it to pot up some spring bulbs, without making a mess in my atelier, but there must be so many other creative uses for it. How would you use it in your home?
Measures 17" x 14" (including handles) x 2.75" approximately.
