American Standard makes two sinks suitable for pre-war homes that have a “wash-stand” feel. Their “Standard” collection sink (shown at left) sits on chrome legs, with a small storage area below, and flanked by integral towel bars. Meanwhile, they also have the similar “Retrospect” sink that sits on either chrome legs or on a custom wood stand (below). Note, I do not tend to think that these are true reproductions, although I could be wrong, as I have not spent even 1% of the time with pre-war archival materials as I have with post-war stuff. This sink — by Strom Plumbing — on the other hand, is super-typical (I think) of bathroom sinks in homes from 1910s, 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. All that said, these American Standard designs do have a great look — and it’s real hard to argue with the storage and those cute towel bars.
