I was so worried when I ordered this set that it would not be of high quality since it was much less expensive than those I had been looking at in home improvement stores and specialty web sites. My husband and I almost gasped with pleasure when we opened the box and saw the extremely high quality of the product. When installed in our vintage clawfoot tub, we couldn't have been more pleased. It looks like a much more expensive set. Thank you so much for making this available to us.
What a bargain! I have been scouring the net for a shower enclosure for an antique clawfoot I purchased for my bathroom renovation. This was hundreds cheaper, and the quality is EXCELLENT! Beautiful heavy nickel coated solid brass by a well known brass manufacturer. I have not installed yet, but it comes with all the necessesary pieces, and directions (no shower head). Couldn't be happier!
This hardware for the claw foot tub is excellent, heavy, and solid state of the art. Easy to install. Think Restoration Hardware quality.

This is a very nice looking product, however, I had alot of difficulty finding an adapter for the water lines. The male component on the faucet is not standard. The shower riser - washer design could be improved. Good value, but be warned that assembly is not problem free.
I put this into my vacation home, and it's wonderful. I have it on a refurbished, antique claw foot tub, and every time I take a bath I feel like I've been transported into another century. It's good quality and works well. It appeared to be easy to put together, but then again, my husband probably wouldn't complain about something that might impinge on his manhood. Seemed to be easier than Ikea products, which usually require me leaving the house to get away from the frustrated yelling.
We couldn't understand how our bathroom remodeling project was such a disaster. There was water pressure, but no water to speak of coming from the hardware. Turns out there are unremovable flow restrictors that make taking a decent shower almost impossible. WITH NO SHOWERHEAD, we got 2 gallons a minute. Must have been designed for people who are hydrophobic.
This satin nickel shower head is beautiful and functional. The handles are very nice. The entire unit is very sturdy. We had it installed by a plumber but could be installed by an amateur, but it was time consuming with a number of sections. It was delivered very quickly.

This set is quite a deal. It is as nice as many very expensive sets. We were quite lucky to find this item.

This is a lovely shower set, more than worth the money. I suspect the bargain price is due to the poor setup instructions, which prompted this less-than-five-star rating. In general it's easy to put together if you have basic plumbing skills. Unfortunately, the directions (and the technical support I emailed) indicate that you should attach it directly to a waterline. Since no waterlines fit the fittings on the back of the faucet, this is problematic. You will need to get a coupling from the hardware store. Too bad they don't explain that, because it caused us a great deal of angst, since I believe in following instructions.

The Vintage Shower Set is very nice and heavy. But the tub faucet was plugged up with something, and the water flow was really slow. I had to hire a plumber to fix it. He was surprised and said he had never seen this kind of stuff in a faucet. That was an added cost. Still for the product, it is worth the cost. I doubt anyone else would have the same problem. I would buy it again.
