This very rare item, now probably around 100 years old, was made in Birmingham, UK, for installing onto the running boards of very early up-market vintage/veteran motor cars. It is absolutely brand new (never used), and in the original cardboard packaging. It was designed for chauffeurs or for travelling mechanics, as a means of washing their hands after dealing with the motor car on the road, e.g., changing a tyre, etc. The interior (which is almost certainly nickel – plated) is in perfect condition, and features a small metal plug on a fine chain. The water for the sink was stored in the space underneath, and was pumped into the basin by depressing the shaft on the left-hand side, with also featured a nozzle to direct the flow. Also featured is a receptacle for a bar of soap, and behind that, a storage area for a hand towel. After the completion of the ablutions, the plug was withdrawn and the waste water then poured out through the drain pipe onto the grass or road below. Every car should have one, so find me another. Apart from anything else, a great investment to hang on to. In Bicton. Although, come to think of it, this is probably way too cheap….
