Description D - Yellow sticker number 2: A wash basin found in the General collection by CE (Steve Austin) on 11 January 2008. It has no number and has not previously been catalogued. It has been taken to Cob Cottage for display.

Cracked cream wash bowl with floral design, originally at BNZ in Beavertown, along with a washing jug and wash stand, according to Graham Gibson who remembers this bowl being in the BNZ before it went to cob cottage.
