Reconditioned faucets and valves offer a quality alternative to imports and can add an authentic touch to a vintage fixture.  DEA rebuilt valves are inspected and restored to new condition using modern materials. Reconditioned valves are guaranteed to be leak-free for 6 months from date of purchase.
     A nice feature of these older valves is they use commonly available faucet washers and stem packing. Should your valve develop a leak years down the road, these time-tested and simple designs can be restored to drip-free operation cheaply and easily..

1920-ish Peck Bros (?) Ribcage Shower
The ultimate shower!  Ribcage showers were installed in the finest homes and mansions near the turn of the century. This unit has a single control mixing valve that rivals any made today for sophistication. Note, this single handle control valve was replaced sometime during the shower’s life, it’s not the original, this one probably dates to the 1950’s.  There’s no name on the shower, but the valves look like Peck Brothers valves, so...  3 separate diverter valves control the overhead rain showerhead, a handheld shower, the ‘wet’ ribs (ribs have tiny holes all the way around spraying in towards the center), and the temperature “test” outlet at the bottom. 


Designed for installation in a tile enclosure with at least 12 GPM water supply and an 80 gal. water heater. (Definitely NOT a water saver!)  Fits in a 36” wide alcove, will also need a minimum depth of 36”, and requires extensive plumbing accomodations.  This unit is for serious restoration or antique plumbing enthusiasts only! Your choice, restored or AS-IS

Original Overflow Covers

“Hammond Plumbing Co. Hammond Ind.”
Replated in Polished nickel, O.D. of cover is 3 1/8”.Casting is fairly rough, probably an early version
OTOC08403 75.00 reserve


Reproduction “Standard” Overflow Covers
To make a long story short, we screwed up.  Our machinist was supposed to make the connectors from an original version of this cover to a drain shoe.  Instead, he made two of the covers..  Rather than tossing them into the scrap bin, we decided to plate them in polished Nickel and see if they would sell.  3 3/16” from flat side across, these will attach to early tub drains that use the single bolt overflow attachment.  They do also have the internal thread that will attach to late 1920’s vintage tub drains.
OF1496 Overflow cover 100.00 each reserve

Original Tub Spouts

Art Deco Tub Spout
We’re guessing that this spout dates to the 1930’s.  Cast Brass with a fresh layer of chrome on it, this spout will screw onto a 1/2” pipe nipple that barely protrudes from the wall.  The spout extends out 5 3/8”.  There’s no name or model number on this one, but it’s a perfect fit for your Deco bath.
OF14602 Deco Tub Spout  110.00 reserve


1940’s Vintage Tub Spout
This one’s not quite as deco-ish as the one above, but it’s still got some nice lines.  Replated in chrome over cast brass, this spout will screw onto a 1/2” pipe nipple extending from the wall 1 3/4”.  The casting on this one’s a bit lighter than the rest, it’s probably a bit newer.  Spout length is 5 1/4”.
OF14603 Deco Tub Spout SOLD

1930’s Vintage Tub Spout
This is one nice, heavy tub spout.  The cast brass spout has a fresh coating of chrome on it, and it will screw onto a 1/2” pipe nipple.  This nipple needs to protrude from the wall 1/2”.  Overall length is 5 3/8”.  No name or mark....
