Large carved Yorkstone antique sink and salting table. Remnants of green paint on front surface. Some loss to back corner from removal from original house. Imported from Yorkshire England, circa 1810
For centuries, every English home had a stone sink in the basement or lower level used to prepare and salt the household's supply of meat and fish for the winter months. This large carved stone sink was originally used 200 years ago and is a nicely preserved example.
Today, these beautiful sinks can be used in so many ways - as a rustic indoor or outdoor sink, shallow trough for succulents, or even a drain for downspouts.
