Here is the description of this rare and important dry sink provided by the well-respected antique dealer from the "Upper Canadian" November-December 1994.
"Simply the best
It is rare if not unique, to find a dry sink of such quality and refinement. In its original comb-grained finish, never overpainted except the well, the stature is extraordinary. The bold backboard is a stylized tulip design associated with furniture of Germanic influence. The bracket base, overlapping drawers, paneled sides, and detailed waist molding are other features of merit typical of furniture made by a schooled cabinet maker. Dating from the 3rd Quarter 19th century."
