Pedestal Sinks
Sink materials:
Pedestal sinks  may be made of earthenware, china, or cast iron. All three  are coated with a ceramic glaze that is fired to give a smooth hard finish. Earthenware  develops a "crackle" finish over time. This was orginally  considered a flaw in the material  but is now a much sought-after look in period restorations. China and cast iron largely  replaced earthenware by the turn of the century; neither is as prone to cracking  as  earthenware. Cast iron is more durable than china but may be prone to chipping and rust.

Unknown China Pedestal Sink
I’d love to be able to tell you who made this sink and when it was made, but there’s nothing stamped on the sink or pedestal anywhere.  It does have a standing waste type drain assembly and a pair of original faucets, and by the appearance of those, we’re going to guesstimate that this sink was made sometime around 1910.  The faucets and drain still have the original finish, and they have a 100 year old patina about them that some may want to keep.  Condition-wise, the sink is in very good condition, with no chips on the slab, and only a couple on the top of the pedestal.  There is some deglossing inside the sink itself.  It stands 30” tall (another sign it’s early) and is 28” wide by 21” front to back.  Truck freight only!

Federal Huber Coated Cast Iron Ped. Sink
Our shop has been waiting for over a year for this beautiful oval pedestal sink to get back from the powdercoater’s, and they were crushed when it arrived.  Not only was there crazing in the basin, there were chips on the right edge, and scuffs all around the edges.  The original Standing waste will be reworked in polished nickel (not pictured) and it will be ready to attach separate hot/cold taps.  This sink probably dates to 1910, and is an extra tall 31 3/4” high.  It measures 30” long and 21” deep.  We’re stuck with it’s issues as the company that did the coating is no longer willing to repair their screw-ups.  Sold AS-IS!

1928 Standard “Blackford” Pedestal sink
This porcelain sink will accept most modern widespread faucets, like our 79-P140C and will look great!  The sink dates to 1928, and it does show a few chips on the top and inside the basin.  Also, the top of the pedestal does have chips on both sides, but this isn’t visible unless you are under the sink.  It measures 24” wide by 20 1/4” front to back, and stands 31” tall.  Truck freight only!

Mid 1920’s Crane Vernon Pegleg sink
Faucets and drain assembly have been restored in Polished nickel.  The top of the sink is in excellent condition, but there is a tight, non-structural crack on the left rear side.  Click here for a close up of it.  The sink stands an extra-tall 33 1/2” and is 24” wide by 21” front to back.  The sink will have to ship truck freight, it’s way too big and heavy for UPS.  Nice period sink!

1959 “Standard” Shelfback Console Sink
This is the earliest sink I’ve ever seen in the brighter “modern” white.  The faucet has been replaced at sometime, and the sink will be supplied with a set of reproduction console legs.  The sink measures 26” wide by 22” deep and stands 33” tall.  It does have two chips, there’s one on the back of the ledge that will be hidden once the sink is caulked in, but the other is right above the “hot” handle, on the edge, and is the size of a grain of rice.  This one’s a bit too big for UPS, it’ll have to ship via truck freight.

1929 “Washington Potteries” Pedestal sink
This particular brand was primarily a West Coast Manufacturer and their products were used in many of the finest buildings built during the teen’s and ‘20’s.  This particular sink shows the Art Deco influences so common back in those days.  The original faucet is long gone, but this one came in with a modern faucet that looks and works great.  There is a tight crack on the right rear, it’s not structural and will not cause a leak, but it’s there.  Also, the pedestal has a silver dollar sized chip right at the top, but the only way it can be seen is by lying under the sink.  Again, it does not affect the sink, but it’s

there.  The rest of the sink is excellent.  Yes, the two issues do affect the price....  The sink measures 30 1/4” wide by 22 1/4 front to back, and stands 31 1/4” tall.
