Update (Jan. 2019). The Kohler Delafield sink remains my top choice for a new kitchen sink if you are aiming for a period-authentic Retro Renovation kitchen. The faucets installed on the deck of the sink + the metal hudee ring + the enamel-on-cast-iron construction: This sink has been around for many decades, and we’re fortunate that Kohler keeps making it.
Readers, this prompts me to advise: On hard-to-find, unique-in-the-market items like these hudee-ring sinks… if you have have a project coming up in the next few years… then you might want to buy them once you know what you want… and store them away for later installation. Another case in point: Boomerang laminate by Formica. Get this stuff while the gettin’ is good, because we Retro Renovators are still a fringe-y market in the grand consumer scheme of things.
