Unusual Early 1900s Basin Taps


We currently have 1 in stock.

An unusual pair of refurbished brass antique taps with H & C tops, possibly from a scullery, I don't think they are outside taps as they have a standard 1/2'' basin fitting. The copper pipe and 3/4'' screw fitting that have been soldered on are both later additions, they could be cut off, I really like them. All refurbished, polished & tested, they'll tarnish pretty quickly after a bit of use. At some point a steel mounting plate was added, we've given it a bit of a clean. Really short reach on these, double check the measurements. 

All our taps are fully compatible with modern plumbing & pressure. The vast majority of pre-1960ish taps have a square locating lug below the base for locating into the square hole on sinks & baths. Some modern sanitary wares don't have these square locating holes, so it's worth double checking the measurements.    


Really good overall condition, spanner marks here and there. The later spout additions aren't dead straight, see last pic.
