This is apparently a European made lavatory with pipe fittings incompatible with plumbing in an American house. Several trips to the hardware store and much custom rigging was necessary to complete the instalation. Much Form and little Function--- Yes, it is beautiful but not very user friendly. Splashing was prominent. It is better now that I have rotated the bowl 180 degrees from the manufacturer's recommendation. So, I recommend it if you are not looking for a high usage, sturdy piece and have a couple of days for instalation. Workmanship and materials are high quality but the functionality design leaves quite a bit to be desired.
