    The website for Eclectic-ware also sells collapsible plastic “replace-a-bar” towel rods in white and clear that can be fitted into old ceramic towel holders. They tend to be a bit smaller than the original rods, but are a good way to repair old tiled in towel racks with broken rods without risking damaging original tile.

    http://www.eclectic-ware.com/Eclectic-ware/Lenape/Re-Place-A-Bar/re-place-a-bar.html

    I imagine that with a little ingenuity, a modern metal square towel rod could be cut down to nearly fit with the plastic rod threaded through to hold it in place. A rod can be cannibalized from an inexpensive modern or salvaged towel rack, or ordered separately from such sources as Rejevenation and Dea Bath. A bit of acrylic caulk could help stabilize the assembly and allow the whole works to be removed and repaired if needed.

    The results won’t be as strong as the original, but it sure beats having two useless lumps on the wall, or being forced to pry up old tile at the risk of new tile not quite matching or fitting.

    The website is hard to navigate, but if you scroll down far enough you will find part and price charts on the various pages and links to related products. The page for the collapsible towel rods contains instructions on how to install and cut them to size. They come in sizes from 12″ to 36″, 3/4″ square. Print out these instructions when you order because the rods themselves don’t come with any.

    The whole Eclectic-ware website is worth trying out, especially since there isn’t a minimum order, and if you are unsure of the color of a particular piece, you can order a less expensive option, such as a garment hook, to check for compatibility before you commit.

    I also found collapsible towel rods on Amazon for comparable prices, but not in as many sizes.

    What about the matching wall tiles themselves, particularly the cap/bullnose pieces and corners? Where can those be found, please?

      Hi Carolita.
      Did you ever get an answer or find the mounting hardware for your soap dish? I am looking also but not having much success.

      Thanks
