...Only one tap.


Cold water only then! One of my grannies had two taps on a sink like this - one was piped cold water from the town supply and the other was a private pipe from a spring up the hill behind the house.

Thank you, Sherri. I have been wondering about the origin of these sinks for some while. The first one I had - the splash back was broken in the post.
I have seen them advertised as metal but I am sure the two that I have are just ceramic.They both have a metal rail to hide the lower part rail running around for a concealing curtain but only one actually has the curtain in place. Only one tap.

One of those ceramic sinks. Do you know anything about them?

Rosemary,
The sink and pastry table are by Dora Kuhn. They are retired pieces. They are cast iron covered with porcelain, very heavy. The sink has a metal chain and stopper, hook to hang a dishcloth on and built in slanted section for the dishes to drain. The pastry table has a small shelf. I've had these pieces several years, just waiting for the kitchen room box. These are my prized pieces! I occasionally see them on ebay. They are not always advertised as Dora Kuhn but as Marianne Modelle, who made them for Dora Kuhn to sell. This is how they looked before I stained the wooden legs and table top. I hope that helps.
