vintage plumbing.


GUESS how much I spent on my latest garage sale find?!

It's a porcelain enamel pedestal sink. LOVE it! Even though we just put in a new sink - I could NOT pass it up. Maybe in our next house....

I googled Standard Sanitary Manufacturing and found the company started in 1899 and was bought by American Standard Company in 1929. Jiminy CRICKETS - could the sink be that old?! I think it is still the original enamel coating finish. It's in great condition, with some slight rust and etching probably caused by abrasive cleaning products.

LOOK - this vintage plumbing website is selling pedestal sinks for thousands of dollars. Holy TOLEDO! Maybe I'll be on the next episode of Antiques Roadshow...

I need to get a flashlight and see if the YEAR is on the inside of the sink.

do u have a guess yet?! leave me a comment - the winner gets a prize.
