vintage sink rareSarah, owner of the groovy round house has eagle eyes for the rare and wonderful and shares this a vintage bathroom sink with a long wacky shaped countertop all in one piece. In green. This is a great one!  Sarah writes:

 Dear Pam,

My dad’s friend went to visit his childhood home earlier this week and took some photos. This sink caught my attention… I’ve never seen one like this before! It is all one unit, sink plus counter! Love it!!!!! And the decorative tile, sooo cute!

Thank you, Sarah! Our first woddity of the year!

Can anyone identify the maker and the year? I’m thing early 1980s by the look of that pedestal base… And maybe the whole counter top thingie is designed with the idea that it would span the top of an adjacent toilet? All kind of clever if you ask me. You can almost never have to much easy-to-clean counter top space in a bathroom near the sink.

Readers, have you ever seen a sink like this before?
What year do you think it’s from?

    I’ve been looking for a vintage vanity for SO long. I even went so far as to post my want to Craigslist with photos for examples. Nothing. I’m so disappointed. Yes, I check ReStore, but our ReStores have nothing like what I see in Pam’s offerings!
    I’ve run out of ideas :-/

    My friend just bought a Condo in Phoenix that has this countertop, although it’s white. Built in 1967.

    I have a banjo sink top and have had it since the 80s. It’s perfect for a small bathroom as it provides space for necessities. I need another one as this one has some chips but don’t know where to find one.
