No one was more surprised than I was with this find!
Why did she save this?

I remember these from 1960's when I was in nursing school--
kidney shaped

why this one was saved--well, pushed back in the closet, buried beneath towels--don't know!
Mother had been in the hospital many times and she always took home those plastic basins, but she didn't save those.
I couldn't find a date on the box
I looked for the basin on the internet but no luck--nothing like this one--
you can buy stainless steel basins.
Oh, well...............
what to do with it now??


  1. Since it's an enameled one in perfect condition, offer it to a nursing college which may have display cabinets or even a small museum of oddities.
