Retro bathroom sinks on chrome legs — Alden from Waterworks

alden-sink-waterworksScanning the marketplace for what’s new on the looks-old department, I recently spotted:  This little bathroom sink — adorable — the Alden bathroom sink from Waterworks. Has metal legs with integral towel bars, and I love that little backsplash.

waterworks-alden-sinkThere’s a sister design, no backsplash. Both of these are relatively narrow, good for tight spaces.

Note: The links to the Alden sinks on Waterworks website that we share are for the legs only. The listings mentioned that the tops are sold separately but we didn’t see them on the website, so we called to inquire and the representative told us that though the tops are not listed on the website, they are available. Below is their size and price information:

  • The Alden rectangular top 28 x 22 x 8.75 is item #11-56947-33393 $371.00
  • The Alden rectangular with backsplash 26 x 20 x1 4.75 is item #11-25880-66006 $ 422.00

And the Alden suite has a toilet to go with.

Waterworks is spendy — but oh so pretty!

    Where can I find a slant back faucet for my vintage Crane? Tired of only having cold water. 🙂

    I am putting in an American standard sink with the chrome legs and side towel bars. The legs are in great shape and I want to use the original ones. We have extended the legs as far as possible but the sink is still too low for my husband’s liking. I saw pam’s post about adding the rubber gasket thingys to make the sink higher. Has anyone else added anything different and had it work? My contractor is thinking some kind of rosette on the floor that the legs could rest on. I have found ones that go around radiator legs to cover the hole in the floor but these snap together around the leg. We are thinking a solid one piece idea. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

        P.S. I thought my old sink was tooooo low when I installed it. I got over it in about 1 day. I have not thought about it since. “Installation shock”?

        Hi Lisa, on issue like this I recommend consulting with pros. For example, give deabath.com a try… good luck!

    I like the look of these, but there are other reproduction sinks that people on a budget can afford. Cheviot makes several styles – some of which are much better suited for a pre WWII (or even pre WWI) home. But I have my eye on this one:

    And there is a Mirabelle faucet that works well for retro:
