An Ode to Porcelain. Part 2. And an Invitation.
In my previous post on this subject, I had wondered about the age of the American Standard toilet in the marble bath of the 1894 Cross House. I knew it was old, but how old? I wrote:
“Is it 1920s? Circa-1910? Or is it the original 1894 toilet?”
One of the things that I really love about having a blog is that people — wonderfully — join in. And Travis left a comment:
“My 1928 Standard toilet bowl is dated on the bottom around the hole.”
Really? So, I turned the bowl upsidedown (the toilet is not installed), something I would not normally ever do. Actually, this is something I would never do. I mean, who looks at the underbelly of a toilet?
And lo and behold:
So, thank you, Travis! The man!
Oh, will you all please join me on October 23, 2026? I just have to have a party to celebrate the century mark of my toilet!
Pencil the date in!
