Brass Art Deco Basin Taps
An unusual pair of solid brass basin taps, stamped Octex & PATENT on their original ceramic indices. Very much in an Art Deco style and probably dating from the 1920s or 1930s, the patent probably relates to the way the retaining nut is part of the shroud. All cleaned, polished, refurbished and tested at mains pressure, fully compatible with modern plumbing.
Sold as a pair.
Good working condition, some weathering to the brass and a few marks here and there.
