Set Shanks Bath & Basin Taps
A fully refurbished and rechromed set of late 1920s bath and basin taps by Shanks. Both the pairs are quite substantial and would have come out of a large bathroom. Both pairs have their original indices and I believe the patent refers to the way the tops screw onto the stems. The bath taps are 1 inch and the basin taps 3/4 inch, tested at mains pressure and fully compatible with modern plumbing.
Sold as a set of 4.
Great condition, a couple of very, very light marks and one of the basin taps has a ting ding on the back of one of the shrouds (you can't see it).
