Love the look but would skip the large shower head
The look and function of the product is lovely. Very heavy. Obviously good quality. I have had telephone-like shower attachments before but this one is of a superior quality. It is very nice. Would have given the overall product 5 stars but was disappointed with the shower head. We popped for the large shower head (as shown in the picture) and the water pressure was dismal. We have never had pressure issues before - but the water would really only come out the bottom half of the outlet holes. Great water pressure and flow when we downsized. But have been pleased with the faucets, enclosure and especially the telephone attachment which makes cleaning the tub a breeze.

Beautiful but hard to install
I am a contractor who has installed dozens of bathroom fixtures. This was for my own house. It is beautiful now but what a nightmare installing. First the wrong instructions were shipped with the parts (and believe me there are a LOT of parts). I ultimately got the correct instructions off the internet. (I'm a woman, I read directions.) A lot of the components already were put together (tight). I only later realized none of the tightened components had the washers installed. (and the instructions didn't mention that oversight). Anyway, beware.
Also, the gooseneck shower arm does not extend out far enough. I had this 5'6" tub, but had to stay in the front 15% of the tub to get wet. I bought the extension arm, which distracts from the beauty of the system, but makes it functional.

When you open the box, the quality of this fixture is impressive. The polished brass finish gleams softly. The tub filler faucet is a piece of great weight, and very smooth operating. The lever control for shower/tub diverting is a nice touch. The sunflower shower head is also substantial, and elegant, producing a gentle rain effect. The hand held shower has an exceptionally high quality feel with the porcelain handle and bold rubber bumpers. Likewise, the enclosure is beautiful, especially in the brass finish.

We love the look and function of the entire shower. It is a great addition to our 1911 house.
