Salvaged from the garden of an Italian villa, this marble basin was hand-carved in the early 1900’s and most recently used as a planter. The ovate shaped bowl has an exterior width of 31 inches and has a small drainage hole in the bottom. A square, rough-cut block that extends from the backside would be used to affix the basin to a wall. The gray marble is naturally weathered, giving the stone a matte finish with a nice speckled black patina. Not only would this piece be a unique garden planter, the antique basin could also be installed as a farmhouse style sink.
Approximate weight: 380 lbs.
CONDITION: Good antique condition, with wear commensurate to age and use, including buildup to the interior of the basin with light scratches and small surface splits. Stone is a natural material that can become darker or lighter from the elements.
