I purchased this over a year ago for my 1920's era cottage and a plumber installed it, no issues. While I love the looks and heft of this faucet, it came with ceramic cross handles rather than the chrome levers I'd ordered. I kept it because it was so cute, but discovered that cross handles are not very ergonomic for a kitchen. In addition, the ceramic hot & cold buttons have both fallen off and had to be glued on plus one of the ceramic handles cracked in two (after being bumped by a cast-iron skillet). I also installed a swivel-head aerator to make the faucet more functional. If this faucet is ever offered again with metal lever-type handles I would recommend it with no hesitation.
Perfect replacement for my old worn out wall mounted faucet in my 1930's kitchen. I wanted something new that looked like period for my kitchen make over and this one fit right in. The higher faucet with 180 degree + swivel allows me to fill, wash, and leave to dry any size item in my farm style single sink.
My husband is a contractor and I buy things that go in the house. We usually only use known brands. However, I liked the look of this faucet for a large sink we put in a kitchen. It is more beautiful than it looks in the photo online. Heavy duty, and shines up wonderfully. I would buy it again, definitely.
I bought a farm sink that has the faucet mounting holes on the back so bought this faucet to pair with the sink. While the faucet looks very classic, the biggest issue is that it protrudes almost to the edge of the sink, so you have to turn it sideways to use it. Also, the "cold" tab fell off after a month of use.
This just made my kitchen.....and the price was very reasonable and the product was top quality....thank you again

I bought this faucet to put in a bathroom for my sons. It is neat! Heavy and the spout swivels nicely. That is good and bad... I am using a large sink for the two of them. I did buy two of the faucets and orginally planned to give each boy one until the plumber pointed out that they could swivel them out and pour water all over the counters.!! One looks really great though and is more than adequate since it puts out a lot of water. This is a nice HEAVY faucet. LOVE it!!

I bought an old farmhouse with a cool sink and was happy to find this beautiful wall mounted faucet. I did have to return it (even though I loved it) because it actually reaches out about 14 inches which overshot the bowl of my sink. The description indicates that it is 10 inches deep but that is only the spout so you need to add another 4 inches for the base of the faucet. I just ordered another one from overstock so hopefully that one fits!
This faucet was easy to install and is flawless in every detail. I have an old house that still has the original wall mounted faucet hook up in the kitchen. The local hardware stores all carried the exact same, boring wall mounted faucet. Not wanting to be relegated to no choice, I searched online, which brought me to Overstock. They had a great selection (too good as it took me over a week to decide). Once I ordered the faucet, it took a week to arrive and was packaged perfectly to prevent damage. Looking at the picture, I worried it would be hard to center, level, and reach both pipes without breaking them or re-plumbing them. It wasn't. The greatest obstacle was having to replace a corroded extension in the wall (the joys of owning an older house). I would recommend finding a piece of soft cloth with good friction (i.e. micro-suede) to go between the faucet and the wrench so as to not mar the chrome (I used paper towel which tore through a couple times, but the faucet was pretty forgiving). My only complaint is the faucet has an old fashion appeal and previous owners updated the kitchen to a more contemporary look. Now I feel I have to redesign my kitchen back in time to match the beautiful faucet.
I am going to install this later this week, but the measurements they give are wrong. It is 9 1/2" high, 10 1/2" wide and 12 3/8" deep. This is a bit of a problem for me because I was counting on 10" depth. I don't know if it will work out in my installation or not. The manufacturer is Kingston Brass. I have never heard of them and not having used it yet I cannot speak to quality, but I would like to see the name of the manufacturer listed in the description of items like this. Overall, it is beautiful and hopefully will work for me. I bought it for use in a "old timey" looking bathroom to use over a vessle sink.
