I've been looking at Solomon's temple for doing a PowerPoint (put on hold for the moment).
In the furniture described are these bronze mobile basin stands, explained in great detail - which unfortunately no-one nowadays can make head or tail of.
I did come across this, though. I really don't think they looked like this (and I don't think he's seriously suggesting it) but it's pretty cool!
