American standard Gracelynn sink white vanity pink sink
1962 American Standard Gracelyn sink with original vanity. From the MBJ Collection/Building Techology Heritage Library.

ES, I AM OBSESSED with this sink. I have one — in white, although I also love this icy gray — in my garage on hold for my tiny, storage-challenged master bath; I am waiting to see if the retro decorating gods also send me the vanity. Meanwhile, I have finally learned its official name: It’s the Gracelynn Cabinet-Lavatory.  The toilet: The lovely Carlyle. You know it is one of my life goals to be able to name every midcentury toilet and sink on sight.

Final note, I believe this sink was introduced in ’59.

    Checked out both sites, they are now bookmarked, might find some great ideas for the banquette I’m looking to do. Plue, just lots of fun to look at. Thanks!!

    I have now found the sink of my dreams! I’ll be scouting for this model at every opportunity. Would be perfect in my guest bath, which is my next re-do project. This is one creamy sink! Love the vanity with its sweetly tapered metal-clad legs….and all that drawer space. Thanks for sharing.

  3. That is the sink I grew up with in my parent’s up stairs bathroom. It has a white top with with yellow wood. I spent many years cleaning and polishing it and always liked its style.

    I bought one of these sink/vanity combos from a post listed on this site for $100. The sink is American Standard’s Regency Blue, which is a deep French blue. It was in Chicago. I’m in L.A. The seller arranged shipping for $150. It took a LONG time, but it arrived last saturday!!!!
    The sink is American Standard’s Regency Blue, which is a deep French blue. It is in perfect condition. The original knobs and faucet are also like new. The vanity needs some love, but requires only superficial repairs.
    Pam, you must be able to read my mind. I was about to embark on an internet search for the names of the vanity and sink. You rock.
    I’ll post pics as soon as I can.

    I went to my Grandma’s 90th birthday a couple of weekends ago. She has the exact same little seat that is to the right of the sink in this photo, bought in the 60s. Oh, and I also adore this sink!

    Question about the above picture:
    Anybody know what the rows of dots on the bulkhead are? Lights perhaps? Wallpaper?

    Many thanks!

    Genjenn, I think the dots are decorative / functional elements of a valence over strip lighting. Looks like the lights illuminate both toward the ceiling and down toward the mirror. The dots in the valence covering them also let some bleed through. Cool.
