I came across this ultra delicate early 20th century antique wash stand recently at a yard sale.
This stand (some refer to it as a bench) is made by Beatty Brothers Limited, Fergus, Canada. The Beatty Brothers family run business specialized in farming equipment and was established in the late 1800’s.
I paid $10 bucks for this piece and it’s now the first thing you see when you walk in my front door. These stands sell for between $60-$125 depending on the condition they are in.
It appears to be made of elm wood and spent a bit of time near some paint over the years, I just think it is so industrial & cool. A little piece of advertising heaven!
This stand used to typically hold two big galvanized steel wash tubs on top. These type of stands were typically on wheels for easy movement and some of them even folded up.
I love items circa 1920’s they have so much flavour. Can’t wait to show you my latest find it has a bit of astrology wonder and the world mixed into one vintage package.
Stay tuned and have an amazing long weekend.
