This sink is absolutely beautiful...you will find it in restoration magazines for 2X the price! The "imperfections" in the sink detail are are what makes it wonderful! The background glaze is NOT pure white like the picture, but rather a greyish green. The blue floral design is lighter in some places and darker in others, the design is not perfectly symmetrical...all of which lends to a more handpainted look, which was perfect paired with the antique washstand that we set the piece on! No installation problems (at least not to do with the sink!) Sink comes with a HUGE dome type pop-up style drain.
THE GENERAL APPEARANCE FROM THE PICTURE IS VERY GOOD. HOWEVER, THIS VESSEL SINK SEEMS TO BE A SECOND QUALITY. THE BLUE STRIPING WAS NOT A CONTINOUS COLOR. SOME AREAS ARE LIGHT IN COLOR AND WERE NOT EVEN. THE BOWL CONSTRUCTION APPEARS TO BE OK .
It looks really beautiful on our marble topped vanity.This bathroom is an 1840's addition, with antique subway tiled shower ,and the sink is a beautiful focal point.The background color IS a light blue,not white.I also bought a compatable pop - up drain, as I did not know that it came with one...that was a VERY good thing,as my plumber had to use parts from both drains to make one workable one for us.I'm not sure of the details on that,sorry. Everything works great!
This sink is a keeper. I am building a new home and I have many antiques. The sink is going to look very nice on an antique wash stand. It does have a grayish tent. If you are familiar with flow blue ironstone, this sink is similar. I could not find much in blue and white but, what I did find was around $550.00. Great value!
The sink was exactly what I was looking for. I am adding a master bath to my 1890's Victorian house and I want fixtures that look like period antiques -- which this sink does nicely. I found the previous reviews helpful when describing the color differences in actual looks vs. the online photo, since what I was looking for was a sink that didn't have a pure white background, so the "complaints" were really an asset to me. The sink was also $1,000.00 less than a similarly styled line of sinks I found online that I considered purchasing.
The sink is really made well and was a good deal for the money. The pattern design is a bit imperfect. Parts of the floral pattern flow over the border lines around the top lip. It kinda just makes it look a little more primitive or hand-painted than the polished, perfect appearing design in the picture, which is why I gave it 4 stars overall instead of 5. It still looks great and will be a wonderful, unique and eye-catching addition to our new bathroom.
The sink arrived promptly and well-packaged. But - more grey than white and appears to be a "second" - at the Chicago Kitchen and Bath Show, I saw the sink on display and it was very different from what I received - no overlaps/spaces in the pattern. Still, it has the antique look I wanted and is good value for the price.
First, the postive feedback. I was surprised that the sink was shipped so quickly and with such a reasonable shipping cost. It was packaged very well. I was disappointed with the appearance because in the picture the sink looks very white with the blue design. It actually looks more grayish. The design is not painted on a white background as it looks but fused into the glass which is a different look than I expected. Still for the price, I guess it's acceptable and I'm hoping once it is installed on a white vanity it will look better.
The sink is beautiful. It's not actually white, though; it's a greyish-bluish white. Also, the pattern is stamped and uneven in depth. There are also imperfections. I still think it's beautiful, but I would not spend the price listed as regular retail and don't believe that it's comparable to what I've seen in retail stores for that price. It's a good buy for its price, but it's not worth any more than I paid for it. I am usually willing to sacrifice a little quality for a good price - and I did with this purchase.
We are building a log home and I love blue and white "Stuff". This sink is a beautiful addition to my collection. It is going to look awesome in my powder room. The picture on the website does not do it justice!!! Thank you for supplying such wonderful items!
