Ivory-colored, ironstone ceramic wash basin recovered in 1990 from the S.S. Central America shipwreck. It is 13.5 inches in diameter, point-to-point across the 12-sided rim, and 4-5/8 inches tall. The base is 6-5/8 inches in diameter. There is an embossed hallmark on the bottom, but it is not legible. There is a large crack from one of the rim corners down and across the bottom, and a half-dollar-size piece is missing along this crack just inside the rim. There are large areas of iron-staining inside the basin but practically none on the outside. When missing piece is replaced, it is barely visible.
