This vessel arrived in fantastic shape and looking beautiful, though not as brightly colored as the photo suggests. We had it mounted in a custom made wrought iron bracket with a wall-mounted faucet and exposed plumbing. Only one snag: The plumber said the tapered hole cut for the drain was a little shallow, so he had to rig an extra washer in the drain assembly to make the standard assembly fit. Word of caution: Some local building inspectors still won't approve vessels without overflow drains...check before you buy! This vessel is absolutely gorgeous for what you pay -- no regrets!!
