Old Northeast Iowa Farmhouse Dry Sink....

This wonderful Old Dry Sink, is one, of two, I picked up, yesterday afternoon... It's solid as a rock, zinc lined, and a real Sweetie... The other one, came from the same Farm House, and is a 'Sister', to this one... but it's 'well' isn't as deep...The other, is the older, of the two... it is also, adorned in, turn of the last century paint, old white { the dry sinks are earlier than their surface...} {'Oyster' to the Country Folk} It has paneled doors, a more elaborate base cut out, has a wonderful, hand chamfored, single board back, and is constructed of Walnut... I'll have images of that one, later....They are both, Darlings...{and need a good bath!}
