So proud of Cybele, daring adventurer who bought these two pink sinks with 10 odd countertop pieces not quite knowing what she had, but knowing she had something. She wrote to see if I could identify her odd find, and I could — based on that big NOS hardware store stash back in 2017. Indeed, they are treasures she got for a steal of a price: Universal Rundle Versa-Tile sinks! So cool to see them in the wild — and so many pieces — and pink! Cybele wrote:
I just bought matching pink sinks, and they had 10 countertop pieces with them that look a bit like two- or three-sided toilet bowl lids. I have never seen this and wondering if you have any info on these. Happy to send pictures.
I wrote back:
oooooh, what a find. Assuming you have what I think you have — Universal Rundle Versa-Tile countertops with sink — we have seen these once, new old stock, I would LOVE if you could send me photos! See my story about this rare sink style here.
Cybele wrote right back, excited to learn what she had. She also was able to nab one edge piece she needed from the NOS listing in my original story — there are still some of these Universal Rundle Versa-Tile pieces on ebay:
That’s it exactly! So excited to learn about them. They will be going into a brand new bathroom in about 2 years (I’m a bit of a hoarder when I find the right thing). I got both sinks and the counter for $50. The left hand cap was broken taking it out and it looks like I can get that one eBay to complete the set!!!
As a side note I am driving to the northern woods of Wisconsin to pick up an aqua blue Cinderella tub! I am assuming a Kohler based on location and apparent color but wouldn’t have even thought of it before getting hooked into your blog!
Finally I found an awesome local source (Kansas City) of vintage sinks, toilets and knowledge. Check out the link [for Graham Plumbing, since 1932-PK].
Thanks, Cybele, for sharing. When you get these installed, I would DEARLY LOVE to see the finished set up! So cool!
