A truckload of vintage Crane sinks, mint-in-box: Feast your eyes

John, the sales manager at deabath.com, has become an online friend. He helps me with bathroom questions sometimes… and reports that he has a “kitchen with really cool white-with-gold-fleck laminate in it.  And a ’52 ford truck in pieces in the garage.” John recently sent me this tempting update:

Hi Pam,

Was up in Portland OR for a wedding, wound up doing some shopping as well…. We scored a load of late ’50’s and early ’60’s Crane fixtures still in their boxes.  Most all in a lovely shade of persian red, but never installed.  Sorry, no pink ones….:( This was quite the find! In the first pic [now shown directly above-pk], there are a couple boxes and buckets. Those are full of new, unwrapped towel bars, soap dishes, and other bath fittings. All dating to the late ’50’s.  I can hardly stand it…..

Thank you, John. You have one of my dream jobs. Disclosure: Deabath advertises on my site. I strive to ignore such bourgeios details and only post what catches my fancy and/or serves the needs of my demanding public. Of course, I appreciate their support of the blog (baby needs a new pair of shoes), and I encourage readers to take a look at their wares.

    Pam, with your permission I have a Ming Green Crane Criterion toilet with the original seat. If you’d like to pass this along to Ms. Maddox it may be of help to her.

    Best,

    Henry

    Am looking for the dark red Crane sink? Is it possible I would be lucky enough that you still have them available. The one on this website is exactly what I am looking for.

    Kim, you need to contact the company written about if the info is there. We do not sell anything on this site.
