I finally spoke to the old gent who 'modernised' our 1600s house in the 1960s and found out that the stairs went out of what was once the kitchen/public bar. ( I dream of making a model of this little place -one day?) I saw 200 year old cottages in south London with that arrangement too so it was not uncommon in smaller houses in the past.

Do you know anything about the makers of the sink, Valerie? I have seen them advertised as metal but mine is ceramic and broke in the post, when coming to me! I managed to mend it fairly well, but have since bought another but I don't know if they are German, English or American. They do look good - so much better than the usual one with the silly spindly metal legs - which I remove and build brick plinths to replace them. Incidentally, the sink you have comes with a frill - that is what the thin metal rail is for. There is one in my Triang/Lines 83 if you check the kitchen photos out.

The sink is probably from Dora Kuhn (Germany), but I can't see it very clearly, so can confirm that.

V jolly arrangement
It's getting rather like Sinks-R-Us - must say this is a rather smart looking one looking good against the tiling

I took the frill off Rosemary as I want to see the buckets etc underneath, I will use it for tea towels as it is check material I know nothing about these sinks I bought it recently from Shernelle's Sale site. It is wood & ceramic.

I hate the silly metal legs & remove them too!

Well, plenty of smaller older HB houses have the stairs going straight up from the kitchen. They're very nice stairs too - and give you a good spot to keep a hoover or dustpan and brushes handy for any mess in the kitchen.
I like the green tiles.
