Long Reach Shanks Basin Taps
A lovely pair of long reach basin taps, made in England by Shanks. This pair probably date from the 1920s/30s as they have ceramic HOT & COLD insert. Normally these taps came off Butler or Belfast basins but they are ideal for positioning on counter tops or island units. The pair have been machine polished and refurbished and tested at mains pressure, fully compatible with modern plumbing.
Sold as a pair.
Overall good condition for their age, a few marks here and there. A couple of locating lugs are a bit damaged but it makes no difference to the operation or fitting.
