My husband and I are very disappointed with these faucets. We bought two of them for our double sink and they were installed approximately June of 2008. We thought they were made very nicely when we first got them. The installation was easy, per my husband, but about 6 months ago I noticed that the bronze finish on the cold water handle was all pitted and coming off in places. Then I noticed that the pop up drain was also losing the finish. It is now half bronze and half shiny metal, like chrome. I was cleaning the sinks this morning and on my husbands faucet, the finish was all bubbled up and when I touched it to see what it was the finish totally flaked off. Now the tip of the faucet is silvery and the bronze is gone! My bathroom is beautiful and the faucets make it look horrible. I can't wait to get them changed. I know they weren't very expensive, but I didn't expect them to fall apart in a year and a half. I'm not sure Overstock knows that this product is quite inferior. I will contact them and see what they will do and then update this review. Good luck with your purchase. Everything else I have ever bought from OS has been wonderful.
This was one of the cheapest Oil Rubbed Bronze Faucets that Overstock offered at that time. I purchased it and then later realized that I wasn't sure if it came with everything I needed, as it didn't have a great discription. I was concerned it might not come with the drain assembly and then it would have been too good to be true. When I received it, I was glad to see that it came with everything I needed and I am very happy with it. It is beautiful and I would recommend it to anybody. I hope they still have it when I am ready to remodel my 2nd bathroom. I have had many compliments on it.
This product will be returned due to completely wrong color, so I cannot tell you how it works. There is no bronze here, it is just semigloss black. Black like coal black. No hint of copper or brass or any other tone. If you want oil rubbed bronze, don't buy this. The supply lines included are ridiculously short, so you will need to purchase new supply lines in about 90% of installation situations, so add that cost to the total cost of the item. All primary surfaces are cast brass (I assume as they are painted) and all secondary fittings are plastic. This is better quality Chinese manufacture, do not compare with name brand American or German made. Annoyingly, when you go to the web site to return, it says the item is not returnable, but calling customer service was pleasant enough and they gratefully offered a replacement or a return. Kudos to live service and a pox on the web lackeys.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Inaccurate. There is no bronze here, just blackety black black black
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fair. Brass cat parts nice, but secondary plumbing 100: plastic, included supply lines ridiculously short; you will likely need to go out and buy your own.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? There is almost no description. As stated, it most likely does not come with everything needed for install since supply lines ridiculously short.. The manufacturer probably saved 50 cents using short lines.
Received the faucets in good condition, eaasily installed, as stated above, color a wee bit darker than I would have liked, but fits in with our decor nicely anyway. Think the faucets were a very good purchase.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color a bit darker than I had anticipated, but acceptable
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good Quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate - actually description did mention it was "dark" oil rubbed bronze
We purchased a new vanity at a great price and therefore did not want to spend too much for a faucet. I searched all the big box stores first and found this one at a great price (almost half price)! The reviews were good so I thought I'd give it a try. Once received I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was! Great quality, arrived quickly and can't beat the shipping cost!
This is the second set of lavatory faucets I have bought. The finish is beautiful & my plumber said all of the fitting are very good quality. I have also bought a vessel sink faucet in the oil rubbed bronze, which will be installed soon. Can't wait to see how great it looks on my wet bar.
great looking, all assembly parts included, easy to install, matching sink stopper included, the oil rubbed bronze faucet we ordered arrived within a few days of our order, installed easily, and looks great. we wil be ordering 2 more for the master bath. would highly recommend this set and was also a great price.
This has a nice sleek look to faucet with a country look to knobs. The color is more of a dk brown the bronze sheen, not tending toward black. If you want dark with no sheen, this is not it. I really wanted more a a black satin, but I liked the look of the faucet - it extends out to middle of sink which gives user more flexibility with hands, vases, face etc. Very sleek, nice, especially for the price.
I am an Overstock junkie! But this was not up to Overstock standards. I bought and returned this product three times until I finally gave up and went to a plumbing supply store. Everytime I received this faucet it was scratched worse than the first time. The only good thing is that Overstock was very helpful in returning/replacing the faucet. If you don't mind a scratched up faucet then this is the one to buy! It is beautiful otherwise. I hate that it didn't work out.
Very nice faucet, the reason that I gave it a fair rating is because it is extremely difficult to install. Despite the reviews we purchased it anyway because the price was so good but I would have to say you should spend the extra money and go with a more common brand. They are a beatiful color, the handles are nice, everything about them is nice but the installation is a b**ch. We have had them in 6 months without issues.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality

I'm always nervous when it comes to ordering from pictures; but I will say that the quality of these faucets is outstanding. No cheap parts, everything is heavy duty, brass parts, quality throughout. I will mark this company as a favorite for ordering bath products. I would say a GREAT BUY for the quality of this product.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. After opening the box, I am Very Excited get it installed. Quality was better than I had anticipated.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Product was described as good quality...(it is High End quality) Beautiful faucet !!
We needed a couple of "fine for now" faucets that would last 3-5 years until we can get a major remodel done. We didn't want to pay $250+ for a faucet that we might only keep a few years. These really fit the bill! They might even last longer than that but time will tell. I liked the quality for the money. The instructions say that periodically you have to wax them just so ya know. I like that the handles have a little red and blue band around them so you know which is hot and cold when you're sleepy and not thinking. Nice color too.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. So far so good

This faucet has only been installed for a day so I can't comment on it's durability, but so far I am happy. Many reviewers found the finish to be too dark but I thought that it was fine as it was very close to the color of my other antique bronze fixtures and hardware. The facuet feels solid and looks great and the only complaint came from my handyman friend who installed it. He said that the drain parts were very flimsy and because of that the drain didn't work properly. However, it wasn't a big problem as he bought a few inexpensive replacement parts at Home Depot to fix it. He also said that most of the hidden assembly parts were cheap plastic so it made him nervous when tightening them down to stop a small leak. The quality is obviously less than other brands but it appears to be acceptable, especially for the great price.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looks the same
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The installer said the assembly parts quality was sketchy
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
We own two of these faucet sets for our bathroom. Within about 4 mths the "oil rubbed bronze" started peeling off the base. In effect, this oil rub bronze is steel painted to look like oil rubbed bronze. I'm contacting the manufacturer for a refund or replacement.
This peice is amazing! I ordered two of them for my master vanity. The color is not fully appreciated until water runs on it. I know that sounds strange, but the color of the finish really deepens and glows to a deep kind of rubbed copper look. I couldn't be more pleased. My contractor had no problems installing. I have a new corian, bone colored vanity, and these peices really set everthing off nicely.
My faucets came in on exactly the day the stated they would. They are very, very beautiful. I had just remodeled my bathroom in an Old World Italy style and these faucets went perfectly. The only problem was the plummer installation which took two hours. I have a pedestal sink and the plummer said "the pedestal sinks were the hardest ones to install faucets on". Neverless, I have received many compliments on the faucets and I am very satisfied with them. I highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking of purchasing them. The price was fantastic and I know I found the absolute lowest price. I reseached all of the home improvement stores before going online to Overstock.com. I can't tell you how satsified I am with my new faucets. Thanks Overstock.com!
shipping was very fast. Item was beautiful, no scratches. My son in law said it was very easy to install. It looks absolutely gorgeous in my newly remodeled main bathroom. Looked around at local do it yourself stores and they wanted at least twice as much and had poor selection. Would definitely order again when we remodel other bathrooms in our home. highly recommend.
I bought 2 of these faucets for my Jack n' Jill bathroom sinks. They are beautiful. There is no way I could have bought this quality of faucet at one of the Big Box stores for this price. We did have to purchase a couple of additional water lines, only because our other faucets were close to 20 years old. Well worth it, in fact I'm ordering 2 more of the sink and a tub faucet as well in the same pattern for my Master Bathroom.
