Davenport Flow Blue "cracked Ice" Foot Bath Or X-large Water Basin Rare 1800's:
This sale is foravery large Davenport Foot Bath or Wash Basin thatis Circa 1800's. The Flow Blue pattern is called "Cracked Ice". Iam selling this piece "AS IS" for there may have been a professional restoration done by a previous owner. This restoration work if done should not devalue the piece for it is rare and the piece is special. If you check my lastfive photos you will see areas wherethe work could have been done.
This piece would make a great flower planter or holder for ice at parties, among other uses. If used as a planter, you can use the "popcorn peanuts"this item will be packed in for drainage. Please do not use small rocks forthey willscratch the porcelain finish.
This piece is 8" tall and measures about 20" from handle to handle. The handles have been applied to this piece. The shape of this piece is particularly nice. This piecehas no cracks, hairlines or chips, but as stated may have had professional restoration. However on one of the handles this in one spot that resembles an area of a porcelain bubble that has no glaze on it.That is how it looks to me. It could be a glaze chipping but I do not believe it is. There also are some manufacturing porcelain air bubbles. Please review all my photos for they are part of my description.
This piece is extremely heavy and large. Itwill probably have to be shipped USPS Select Mail or UPS Ground.
Please be advised that the items I love and sell are vintage and therefore have had a previous history where the items were used. I will explain all the defects that I see, but I may miss a minor defect.
