Authentic Provence offers a collection of antique hand carved basins and troughs from France and Italy. These exemplify timeless style with aged surfaces and organic flows ranging from the 17th to the 20th century. The antique basins are of finest quality and were hand carved of Italian white Statuario marble or in Carrara marble, French limestones and granites. In the 18th century, basins and washstands were used in ancient Greece, modeled after its predecessor, a monastic lavabo which fed water into a cistern.

These styles were also seen and used in castles and palaces later all over Europe. The early style was a tripod fixture that supported a bowl as a vessel and was made to nestle into corners of rooms; these were often also made portable. Please choose from our vast spout and spigot assortment to find the perfect piece to accent your basin, trough or fountain.
