    Washstand, England, 1780-1800, painted softwood. A double folding top opened to reveal a bowl for washing. When folded up, the top also protected walls from splashes. Designed to stand in the corner of a room, a similar stand is illustrated in Thomas Sheraton's Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer’s Drawing Book, published in 1792, where it is described as a 'Corner Bason Stand'. The slightly splayed front legs gave the washstand greater stability. | V&A | photo compilation: @LucindaBrant
