Where oh where can I find a pretty table-like sink/vanity unit like this one?

I'm doing up a Georgian style bathroom ad I love the look of this console. I know it's secondhand but has anyone seen anything similar on a website anywhere, or can recommend a good second-hand place? Had a look on eBay, load of old (actually, mostly new/fake old) cobblers.

Have a look for Edwardian washstands on eBay - Georgian style furniture was popular in the era and they often have tiled upstands at the back, which you could retain or remove as you prefer.

I have this in my downstairs loo that is similar. I bought this as a dressing table from a local antique shop (or try 2nd hand shops) for £100ish, stripped the varnish, removed the mirror that sat on top and got a joiner to re-work the drawer so it fits around the plumbing. The basin was from a local plumbers merchant.

Amazing tips wow and Tattie, thank you. I like your sink too Tattie. You didn't find the table with sink on top too high?

Hi
We had this, it's an old washstand. In the process of redoing the ensuite and have opted for a large modern sink for a change.
Not sure I have made the right decision!

No, our table / basin combo is a very similar height to a pedestal basin. Depends where you live but this is where we got ours from www.petersmithantiques.co.uk/catalog/dressing-tables_77.html

Amazing thank you! I really like this console table: www.maisonsdumonde.com/UK/en/produits/fiche/wooden-console-table-in-white-w-108cm-basse-cour-117195.htm

justa that link takes me to MN but I like the console in your pic...

That's nothing like I imagined from your OP! If you have bowl style basins sitting atop something like that I think you might find the shelf at the bottom makes it awkward to get close enough to use them comfortably.

True. That one is not a very thoughtful design in my op. Love @Tattiepants' sink design. Neat and authentic.
