Can you believe it? You can still get the exact faucet required for a vintage American-Brand kitchen drainboard sink at at Locke Plumbing. Locke Plumbing also sells various parts separately.

raymond loewy American Kitchens sink faucet from Locke PlumbingThe owners tell me they still sell quite a few of them, including to lots of folks in Europe.  I was told it does not fit other sinks, but I am not an expert. 

Note, these American brand kitchens were designed by famed industrial designer Raymond Loewy — what wonderful historic provenance.

    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
    Sherry

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

    I have a vintage turquoise Frigidaire all in one kitchen with a stainless steel counter top from the 1950s or 60s I am not sure. I am trying to restore the sink and I need a faucet. Would you happen to know where I could find one.

    Thank you in Advance

    Hi,
    I have a faucet like the one above. It always leaks. We need to replace the washers on the handles often. Is there a way to prevent the leaking? Also we are out of washer replacements, Do you know what size the washers are or where is the best place to buy replacements?
    I love the sink, but I am not a fan of the faucet because of the leaking. Is there a better replacement?
    Thank you for the help!

    Hi Kelly, I am not an expert. On issues like this its recommended to consult with pros. Perhaps Locke Plumbing can help you as they sell the replacement. Good luck.
