Shanks Chrome Basin Taps

We currently have 1 in stock.

A refurbished pair of early 1900s chrome basin taps by Shanks. We don't see many shanks taps with the exposed valves, these are probably 1920ish maybe a bit later. Tested at modern mains pressure and fully compatible with modern plumbing.

Sold as a pair.


Good working condition, the chrome I assume is the original and its lasted really well, some very slight signs of wear.
