Hi All,

I purchased my home from a railroad collector and he informed me that an antique brass wash basin was left in the attic. Attached you will find a picture and I placed a matchbox car on the sink as a size reference. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could share their guidance with regard to the collectability of this piece as I would rather see it go to a collector than a scrap yard.

I can provide additional pictures and measurements upon request, and thanks in advance for sharing your expertise!
