Flow Blue H & K Tunstall Hollinshead & Kirkham Wash Basin 1880's
Here is a Victorian era wash basin made by Hollinshead & Kirkham of Tunstall England. Cobalt blue marks read: Alexandria Hollinshead & Kirkham Tunstall England. The mark dates it between 1876 and 1890... after they moved to Tunstall and before they began using the unicorn logo.
The pattern, which features cobalt blue flowers, sprays of gold dust, and gold banding, is called Alexandria. It measures 16" x 13" at top rim and is 4.25" high. Scalloped oval shape with molded ornamentation inside. There is loss of gold at the rim in some spots and heavy wear to surface at bottom inside where the pitcher would have scraped across. The rest has some scratches but is in good condition with no cracks, chips or repairs.
We purchased this piece from an estate sale where it had been used as a set with the Wm A Adderley pitcher we're offering in another of our auctions this week. They look great together but were made by separate companies.
