It’s available here from Locke Plumbing. Update 2015: Not so sure it’s still available, but you can ask… The owners tell me they still sell quite a few of them, including to lots of folks in Europe. Click on the thumbnail of the faucet for sale – you can see it’s designed to nestle right into the backsplash of the sink top. I am told it does not fit other sinks, so no need to go there. Cool, huh? I just love having found this – thanks again go to Russell for turning us on to Locke Plumbing. Remember folks, they are also great if you want to fix a particular brand of vintage toilet.

    HI, I have an 1946 American Standard faucet, as seen above. I have one issue with it. We found a site that sold replacements, and my husband installed it, but we can’t seem to keep the head from sliding out. If we move it back and forth too many times it works its way out, and leaks and sometimes comes completely off. I know it has a washer on it, but don’t know if there is suppose to have something else attached, and how to get to it under the sink. Thanks

      I don’t know the answer to this. I suggest you contact the company that sold it to you for instructions…
