Antique French Art Nouveau Wash Basin and Water Pitcher, rare to find the two together these days, as often the basins are gone. Perhaps Madame's upstairs maid dropped the basin? This set is a classic elegant nouveau to Art Deco shape, with beautiful decorative blue floral designs. A classic pattern made in 1923 the Orchies and Hamage, their factories had merged and became Moulin des Loups & Hamage.
Used in every French household, the pitchers and basins were for washing, after the maid brought warm water. When not in use, the pitchers sat inside the basin. A charming set, in good antique condition. Picture this filled with your antique heirloom towels, as shown, filled with a luxury bouquet of pink roses, or on display in all its decorative glory. Measures: Pitcher: 9-1/2" h x 9-1/2" x 5-1/2"; Basin:12-1/2" x 5-1/2" h.
