I ordered this vessel sink for my bathroom to go on an antique dresser turned vanity. The sink is heavy-duty, built with solid quality construction. The background is not white, as other reviewers have noted, but that does not detract from the antique look of this sink. My caution to future purchasers is to find a vessel filler faucet that has at least a six inch reach, preferably a little more. I originally ordered a bathroom vessel filler faucet that had a four inch reach and stood eight inches tall and had to return it for a kitchen/bar faucet that was 11 inches tall with an eight inch reach.
The lighter areas of porcelain are more blue/gray than cream/bisque. Other than that it is a great conversation piece for my clients half bathroom. Adds a lot of charm and character

I have a large collection of blue and white porcelain in my home. This is exactly what I have been looking for and the blue and white matches typical blue and white porcelain (which is not usually "bright" white unless it is a reproduction in my experience). I could not be happier. The sink arrived well packed and in perfect shape. I have not installed it yet but certainly appreciate one of the other reviews that commented about the reach needed for the faucet. I intend to get a kitchen-size faucet with the appropriate reach for this lovely vessel sink that will be installed on the top of an antique walnut washstand with a white carrera marble top (saving the original granite top and getting new marble to be cut out for faucet and drain -- then can reconvert the piece later if I ever want to do so). If you collect blue and white porcelain like I do, never fear -- the colors are perfect to blend right in with your collection.
The product was delivered quickly in excellent condition! I couldn't be happier with it. I was a little apprehensive reading the other reviews discussing the coloring being greyish but my sink arrived blue and a very very slight grey hint to the average person would be viewed as white. Excellent product!
I purchase this sink a couple of years ago. Unfortunately it took us that long to get to the bathroom remodel and get it installed. I was so very excited to have the plumber finally get it in. However, after installed we learned that the town has a dip in it. The ceramic around the drain hole is higher than the bottom of the sink around the white strip. This means that the water does not drain and puddles in the sink. I have to take a towel to mop it out each time you use it. I called customer service and they simply gave me the number to the manufacturer (who was not available). I understand that I purchased it some time ago, however, I expected a better response. I am now forced to spend the money to buy another sink and pay another plumbers bill to get it installed.
This is a substantially made sink which should hold up very well over time. It's very pretty in our Asian inspired powder room. My only complaint is that there are a couple of flaws in the blue design that bug me a little. Honestly, though, no one else will likely ever notice them. I'm just very particular!
I am so excited about this purchase. I debated for a whole year about whether to go with a vessel sink.. actually this very sink, since it is appropriate for a classically styled home. The coloring is perfect and I went with a wall-mounted faucet, which I am really excited about.
