Readers David and Laura knew: Sinks with attached counters are called”banjo” tops
Sarah, owner of the groovy round house, has an eagle eye and a cell phone that takes photos and she knows how to use it: So here’s some retro reconnaissance (aka “retro recon”) spotting of a vintage bathroom sink with a long wacky shaped countertop all in one piece. In green. This is a great one! Sarah writes:
My dads friend went to visit his childhood home earlier this week and took some photos. This sink caught my attention… I’ve never seen one like this before! It is all one unit, sink plus counter! Love it!!!!! And the decorative tile, sooo cute!

Thank you, Sarah! Our first woddity of the year!
Can anyone identify the maker and the year? I’m thing early 1980s by the look of that pedestal base… And maybe the whole counter top thingie is designed with the idea that it would span the top of an adjacent toilet? All kind of clever if you ask me. You can almost never have to much easy-to-clean counter top space in a bathroom near the sink.
