Old-fashioned Clawfoot Tub Deserves Cool Antique Faucet
Those who live in historic houses often choose to remodel in a manner that remains true to the time period the home was built in.
In the bathroom, you don’t necessarily want an antique tub that really is 100 years old, but you can find lots of companies offering reproductions. This gives the benefits of modern technology with the look of the authentic pieces. If you’re installing a clawfoot tub as part of your authentic bathroom remodel, you’ll probably want a faucet that looks right for the period too.
This antique clawfoot tub faucet from the Plumbing Supply Store has a traditional look and sports separate hot and cold metal lever handles. The built-in soap dish answers the question of where you put the soap bar when you’ve got a clawfoot tub.
The product description does note that the eccentric spout doesn’t meet modern building codes in many areas, so that’s something to check into before you put in any authentic or reproduction period fixtures!
