I love old scientific and medical items. There are a number of them in my collection. This is one of the more interesting ones that I purchase from a long closed laboratory supply house. After many, many years the building which housed the supply house the building was to be demolished.

The sink is closed in with a funnel-like opening. A spout on the side disposes the liquid contents (water I suppose). It has wonderful enamel cast iron cabriole legs. These are detachable.
