Antique Vintage 1900s Cast Iron Double Basin Sink & Stand by made by Cannon Porceliron. Collection in person only from Manchester M24.
Cash on collection only please. I recently bought this beautiful sink to go into my own bathroom, but unfortunately as we have had to make a number of changes to the room, it will no longer fit, and I have to let this gorgeous little piece of history go. It was originally salvaged from an old mill in Bolton. Size is 78cm high, 84cm wide, 42 cm deep.Diameter of the plug hole is just under 4.5cm. There are some larkings in the cast iron showing'Cannon Porceliron' and model number of 1047. This number is also on the cast iron stand. Note there has been a historic repair to the back right corner - see photo. It will benefit from being re-enameled, as it is an old sink it will need some work to restore it. Taps that are with it are old and the two'hot' taps are matching, but the other two'cold' taps look like they have been replaced or maybe never were a perfect match. The ceramic on one cold tap is chipped and the other one is faded. You are welcome to take the taps with the sink but I wouldn't know if they could be brought back to working order or not. Hence the listing is for the sink and stand only (but happy to include the taps however). In terms of provenance, you can find out more about the history of Cannon Foundries Ltd, and their patented Porceliron technique, in the National Archives.
