AUTHENTICITY - In style and detail, this Basin is exactly the same as a Victorian original.
QUALITY - This Wash-hand Basin is hand-cast and hand-finished using the best Vitreous China clay and glazes. Great attention is paid to the soap-dishes and mouldings, as it is particularly difficult to achieve the definition of the Victorian originals when using modern Vitreous clays. (Vitreous China is now employed because it is impermeable, unlike the clays used by the Victorians which sometimes crazed and subsequently leaked).
The finely detailed transfers are fired properly into the glaze, so are smooth to the touch, as were the originals.
