Original Tanks and Bowls are sold separately unless otherwise stated. Most tanks and bowls can be made to work together to make high or low tank toilet sets.

Many of the items pictured have special plumbing requirements. Our plumbing experts will be more than happy to help you select fixtures  and matching fittings that will work together to compliment your decor.

Unless otherwise stated, prices are for tanks or bowls ONLY. Additional hardware (Flush tubes, mounting brackets, etc) are extra.  Please call for quote.

Please keep in mind that our antique bowls are 50  to 100 years old. They will show some signs of wear and may have slight defects or repairs in the porcelain. All have been thoughly cleaned and sanitized and are guaranteed to flush properly with the correct tank.

Though most high-tank toilets will flush quite well on 1.6 gallons, they are not certified as low water consumption fixtures.  Installations subject to inspection may require a historical or special variance permit. Be sure to consult with your local building  department before making a purchase.

OTB13111S

1895 Johnson Bros English Decorated bowl w/ Throne Seat
Here’s the rarest of the rare when it comes to Toiletry!  This is an original washdown hightank bowl with it’s original Mahogany throne seat AND the original cast iron painted support brackets.

The bowl does have a few chips around the bolt holes and one non-structural crack on the front left side, but considering the age

OTB13111

and rarity, these are minor flaws.  We were told that this particular toilet came from a mansion that Jack Benny owned, but unfortunately, we have no paperwork to prove this.  Inlet of bowl is 1 1/4”, it can only be used in hightank applications.  It will also require a 4” flange and waste line.  Rough-in appears to be 14”, but the rough should be installed after toilet has arrived at it’s new home.  Truck freight only!

1900 L.Wolff “Celeritas” Raised Ornamentation Bowl
Raised Ornamentation bowls were prominent back in the late 1800’s up to about 1905 or so.  They have gotten quite rare as of late.  Click here for a close-up of the ornamentation.  This particular bowl is set up for an extremely odd rough-in, it requires the 4” by 4” closet flange to be at 18” away from the rough wall.  But, it’s a rare bowl....
Considering this bowl is 113 years old, it’s in remarkably good shape.  There are no chips or cracks.  There is a bit of wear around the base of the bowl, near the front, and the top lip of the bowl is lightly scuffed.  Match this bowl up with a nice, wood low tank and you’ll have one nice set!

OT110830

1951 Crane Criterion Elongated Close-coupled Toilet
A rare find!  Supplied with the original saddle seat and original flush lever, this toilet just screams  modernism.  It was Crane’s top-of-the-line for 1951, and was only found custom, high-end homes .  12” rough, 3” waste, will fit most newer applications.   It does have one chip that will be hidden once the tank is mounted.  It’s not structural, but it is there.  The hinges and lever will be replated in chrome.  Truck freight only
OT110832 Crane Criterion toilet, one chip 795.00 reserve

OT12101

1928 Case “Kidney Lid” Lowboy toilet
This is one nice toilet!  Original flush lever will be replated in chrome.  The lid is a factory replacement (it’s dated 1965) and is a slightly brighter shade of white.  Internal parts will be rebuilt, and this toilet will arrive ready to install.  Toilet has no chips or cracks, but there a bit of deglossing inside the bowl.  12” rough, needs to sit on a 4” flange (not a 4 X 3”!)  Case toilets were the finest made in their day and have gotten rather dificult to find anymore....  Truck freight only!
Note, original style seats not available, we recommend a lightweight plastic seat to prevent damage to lid.

OTB13075

1890’s (?) “Henry Gillett” Raised Ornamentation Bowl
There’s no date stamped into this bowl, and due to it’s design, we suspect it’s English.  The outlet goes out the back at a rather odd angle, it’s going to require a 4” flange and some sort of pony wall or tapered extension coming out of the wall.  1 1/4” inlet, so this will have to be used with a high tank.  Also, it will need a throne seat made to fit.  Condition is very good for the age, with some wear on the front bottom edge and two dimples in the rim from the original seat.  Click the photo for a larger view!

OTB13070

1895 John Douglas “Sluice” Raised Ornamentation Bowl
This is a nice functional early washout bowl that features the raised ornamentation found on many pre-1900 toilets.  This particular bowl was made for the John Douglas Company by Keystone Pottery.  It’s intended to set onto a 4” flange at a 14” rough-in.  As the inlet is only 1 1/4”, it’ll need to be attached to a hightank.  Also, a throne seat will need to be fabricated for this bowl.  There is quite a bit of discoloration around the base of the bowl, unfortunately American porcelain makers back in the day did not have quite the knack of making their porcelain impervious to staining.  There are a couple dimples worn into the rim, this was from the original seat.

Top-Spud Bowls

Top spud bowls require very specific rough in’s in order to function with available flush ell’s.  All of the below bowls will HAVE to be set on the indicated finish dimensions and the tank’s outlet centerline must match as well.  Mostly found in upper-end homes, these toilets were normally sold with rear-inlet tanks.  We recommend having the toilet in-hand before roughing in the drain.
The below “Required dimensions” are from finished wall to centerline of drain, Size of drain pipe, and distance from finished wall to centerline of outlet of tank.  “AW” refers to antique white, “MW” refers to the brighter, Modern white.

A note about “Washout” vs. “Washdown” Toilet Bowls:   Washout bowls do not always  have an integral “S” trap, instead the trap is installed in the floor to prevent sewer gases from entering the room. This makes them unsuitable for use on existing modern plumbing. Washout toilets do not have a large standing water surface (a “pool” of water in them), so keeping them clean can be difficult and odors may be a problem. Though many are still in use today, we at Bathroom Machineries generally don’t recommend that washout bowls be used in bathrooms that will receive more than infrequent use. These are best used for historical and “museum quality” restorations or in the private bathrooms of “hard core” restoration enthusiasts! 
   Washdown toilet bowls made from about 1890 on are basically the same as modern bowls in design and function. Washdown bowls can almost always be adapted to work with modern plumbing, though many require special rough-ins or that a high tank be used to achieve an adequate flush. As with any item you see on this site, we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about our selection of antique fixtures and will gladly guide you though selecting age-appropriate fixtures and accessories for your restoration project.
