I am linking today's post to Smiling Sally's Blue Monday.
This is one of two washbowl and pitcher sets that I have. I love them, but have limited myself to two. This one was made by the Bennett company Which was located in Baltimore Maryland in the 1890's.
I love blue so of course this was a must have. I have it in my bathroom and usually have flowers in it, but did not have any for this post. I love the combination of the blue flowers and the fruit. The colbalt blue is my favorite color blue. Of course we have to have a lovely crochet edge handtowel to dry off. This pitcher came with a lid. I would think that was to keep the water hot from the wood stove to the bedroom where most of these were used in their early life. I had a washstand with a harp back where I displayed this, but have sent it on to live with my daughter. I had used the stand as changing table when she was born. Was the perfect piece for that. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Sally for Blue Monday.
