The Cross House
I have two ideas:
- The pair of 3 holes right/left held a soap dish and water glass. The center 3 held a ring, which held a beaded chain for a sink stopper. Or maybe not.
- As I sat on the floor and stared and stared and stared at this bedeviling slab of white quartz an idea popped into my head. I have been assuming that the 1929 sink replaced the 1894 vanity. But what if there is a missing link? What if the 1894 sink was already long gone by 1929? This actually makes sense, as the house in the teens had been converted into a sanitarium, and in the 1920s it was a tea room. Perhaps the low 1894 marble vanity was replaced with a higher sink, and one more suitable for commercial usage? If so, could the five holes be for a mounting bracket?
