Here’s a wild wacky and wonderful vintage bathroom sink for our woddity files — this corner sink from 1959, for sale on ebay from seller nysalvage. This sink is quite similar to the 1954 Kohler Marsfield corner sink from my catalog here. Except this one has even more height, and different angles. Imagine the mold used — krazy!
From the ebay listing:
Up for your consideration is a vintage porcelain corner bath or powder room sink. The sink is dated 1959 and it is a peachy tan color.
It has a decorative stepped and curved front and a nice shelf top back.
There are a few pock marks around the faucet mounting holes and there are a few light scratches in random spots nothing that could be called an eyesore. Overall it can be considered in very good usable condition and will come with its original mounting brackets as shown in the last picture.
Measures approx: 17″ from back corner to front edge, 24″ from one side to the other, 20″ total depth, Faucet mounting holes are 1 1/2″ diameter and are 5″ apart on center, The basin is 13″ X 11 1/2″ X 5 1/2″deep up to the overflow. The drain opening is approx 1 5/8″ in diameter.
Has anyone ever seen this sink in the wild before? What a cool piece of vintage bathroom history!
Mega thanks to ebay seller nysalvage for letting us feature this fantastic vintage sink.
- Looks like this sink would require a so-called shelf-back faucet, deabath.com our go-to source for such designs. Note: deabath.com is an advertiser on our site but this mention is not “part of the deal.”
