Pre-loved Basil Smetham Kitchen Sink Unit With Copper Geyser @ £65.00
Here is a wonderful sink unit made by the renowned artisan, Basil Smetham. It is believed to have been made around the 1980s/90s. Basil made all this by hand, including the exquisite copper geyser with some lovely detail, and all the pipework. The entire framework, including the mock brick stone pillars, mock tiled back and butler sink, have all been made out of wood. The sink has been carved out of a single block of wood, and even includes a plughole with an accompanying loose plug on chain. And yes, it slots into the plughole! There is relevant pipework leading to cold water tap, plus pipework and hot water tap coming from the copper geyser. There is even a tiny metal soap holder fitted onto the back tiled wall. The tiled wall is painted scored wood and is very realistic. The brick effect pillars have been made from scored wood painted terracotta. The wooden back panel has been scored to give the illusion of tiles and painted white. There is a useful storage shelf under the wooden draining board, and lower down there is a blue and white gingham fabric curtain covering another storage area. On the back is a handwritten label in pen with the name BASIL SMETHAM. Overall this is in a relatively good used condition, there is a weeny bit of wear here and there. Measures 5 1/8” wide x 2” deep x 4 3/8” high. This could be used in both modern reproduction as well as vintage dolls houses, it certainly looks the part…lovely item!
