Elizabethan Classics Widespread Lavatory Sink Faucet - Porcelain Cross Handles
I'm very pleased. Faucets are on the small side, but it's what I wanted for my small sinks. I bought them in gold tone and didn't want them overwhelming. They look and function beautifully.

Looks great with peg leg sinks
We recently bought two of these faucets to use with antique peg leg sinks in a new bathroom renovation. Although I originally liked the look of a couple of other faucets on this site, they proved to be way too tall and stick out too far to be matched with our somewhat smaller basin sinks. These faucets work perfectly though and give us the chrome and white cross handle look we were wanting. They are solid and heavy duty, and I would purchase them again.

This faucet looks wonderful with our white pedestal sink in our tiny 1940s bathroom. We had some difficulty installing it because of space constraints and we had to buy some parts from Home Depot, but every installation is a challenge in our old house. If I had to do it over I would probably hire a plumber, but it is definitely possible to DIY. And the installed product looks great and works perfectly. The handles do turn in opposite directions, which took some getting used to, but it doesn't bother me.

Porcelain cross handles are difficult to find but these work perfectly for my 1940's house. These taps are surprisingly high quality for the price, in fact it would be difficult to improve them. The supplier should give the option to have two counter clockwise opening valves (two hot valves) for taps with cross handles. As delivered they are designed to have toggle style handles which must open in opposite directions to work properly. This is a minor detail because it is easy to get used to but new guests sometimes need some tap coaching. Really good set of taps with superior service - very impressed.

Great Vintage Faucet
I live in an apartment in a 100 year old building. I wanted to renovate my old bathroom, but didn't want to retile it, so I chose vintage faucets, sink, etc., Left the old tub. The faucet looks perfect. The only glitch was when the little "hot" tab came off one of the handles and fell into the drain where I would have to take apart the pipes below to retrieve it. I called Vintage Tub & Bath and they replaced both handles immediately, gratis. Thank you, VT&B, I love my new old bathroom!!

Elizabethan Classis minispread lavatory sink fauce
I was amazed at the quality of a product that came from China. My past experience with plumbing items from off shore left me less than impressed so when I started to install these I was amazed at the quality and actuall ease of installation. Because of the limited space under the vanity and sinks that I bought I did have to make an alteration to the water supply hook up on each faucet by soldering one fitting off the main body on each one. I have plenty of experience on soldering and how to fabricate plumbing fittings so it was not a problem.

Just what we were looking for--easy to install, works well and looks great, except for the "H" that fell off the hot side. Glued back on, but should not have fallen off in the first place.

Love these faucets
I use these cross-handle porcelain faucets in a powder room application to complement the period look of the bathroom. Customers love them because they do not find this type of product at the big box retailers.
