I purchased this vessel sink to replace a vessel sink already installed in my guest bathroom. What an improvement! I chose this sink because the granite countertop is full of blacks, tans and glittery golds. This is the perfect vessel sink because it is dark brownish to blackish and the gold in it glitters just like the countertop. The back of the sink has a foil finish which adds texture and a reflective glow. This was an incredible buy; it installed easily; it looks great!
