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.
