Huge Royal Doulton pedestal basin

This really is a giant. It came from the basement of a house where it had lain in storage for years. Its made from what looks like fireclay (like a Belfast sink as opposed to a normal wash hand basin) and must date to about 1880. Its all very original, with lovely old Doulton taps with tiny concave ceramic transferred 'hot' and 'cold' buttons on the tops. Its a heavy thing-almost a 2 person lift and therefore tough as nails, but it does have a few little pitted areas to the inside of the bowl and a little chip on the front of the pedestal. Nothing really very serious as you can see from the pics, and we've never had one before and it really is a peach!
Sizes to follow.
If you're concerned about the condition-its fine, you'll never crack a sink like this.
