A charming early Victorian mahogany washstand, the three quarter gallery with a basin recess on turned and ringed uprights, over a single shelf with drawer over turned and ringed legs, also comprising a later stoneware basin and jug, with a gentle patina and wear commensurate with age and use, otherwise in good condition.

The average piece of furniture generates approximately 47kg of carbon dioxide equivalents – roughly the same as burning 5.3 gallons of petrol. Buying this item second-hand versus a newly made equivalent recovers the energy used to make it, rather than generating further emissions and using new materials.
