My friends at DEA Bathroom Machineries aka deabath.com, longtime advertisers of the blog, let me know about this very rare find: A 1937 Crane Neuvogue pedestal sink. Correction: It’s not a “find” in the true sense — these bathroom Indiana Joneses hunted for three years to collect all the parts to make one sink. And then there was more fussing.
I think that… Brad Pitt or Barbra Streisand needs to buy this sink, they’re both big into design. In fact, Brad — may I call you Brad? — why don’t you contact me personally, and I’ll put you in direct touch with the folks at deabath. Heck, I’ll meet you there to look it over, and we can help you design a bathroom to go with.

1937 Crane Neuvogue Pedestal Sink
This sink is the Holy Grail of pedestal sinks. Designed by Henry Dreyfuss, this sink represents the pinnacle of Art Deco sink design. Rarer than Hen’s teeth, it took us three years to come up with all the parts, and then we had to come up with a conversion kit to replace the original cartridges with something that actually works. This sink is the C-200 version, and it is 27 1/4” wide by 22” front to back, and stands 31” tall. There are a few scuffs on the top of the waterfall spout, and a couple on the front lip. There was a chip on the bottom right corner of the pedestal, it’s been repaired.
Truck freight only! Call for quote.
I really appreciate how deabath hustled to make this sink happen. Their quest indicates a real love of the vintage, just like the rest of us have. I love that aspect of “mission” in the businesses I often get to work with. xoxo
Seems to me this sink belongs in a museum.
