Wash stand from Room 3 - Mr. & Mrs. Proudfoot's Bedroom, Basement, Central, Pendle Hall. From back left corner.
It was created by Felicity Clemons as part of a 40 project to create a grand fully-furnished Georgian style country dolls' house. The project began in the 1940's when Felicity's daughter, Antonia, was given a three-room dolls' house by her grandmother. Mrs Clemons was not happy with its scale or authenticity and so began a rebuilding project which resulted in a four storey grand house, now known as Pendle Hall. Although some items were purchased during shopping trips to Melbourne, the majority of furnishings were constructed by Felicity's own hands, using numerous reference books and magazines.
Wooden corner wash stand. Three levels. Round hole cut in to top level. White dish on second level. Two small wooden cups recessed into top level. Small white painted cup with flowers on top corner. Small drawer in middle of second level.
