Vintage Catalogs: A Delicious Pleasure PART II

While perusing through an online 1893 Wolff Plumbing catalog, I can across this beauty. It looked familiar. But why? Courtesy archive.org

Ahhh, I just saw one on eBay! FABULOUS, and perfect for the main bathroom in the Cross House, save one small detail. The price. $2600! Not bad actually, but not something I will be buying soon. Sigh. The sink is from Rewired Antiques in Indianapolis.

The wash basin (or sink in 2016 lingo) is also FABULOUS. And note the shell soap cup.

And speaking of decorated wash basins...OMG!
