We love our Dishmasters — vintage and new — and now, look at this rarity: A Dishmaster Bar Boy — a stainless steel bar sink packaged complete with M-59 Dishmaster faucet, unused and still in its original box now for sale by junqluv on ebay (listing now gone). “For family room, patio, apartment, boat, mobile home” — some fun was going on! 13 years of blogging the retro, and about 10 years of watching for Dishmasters, I’ve never seen this before. Let’s take a look inside >>
Thanks to seller junqluv for giving me permission to archive this wonderful vintage kitchen product set here on the blog. He was very excited about this find, and happy to see it captured here for history. He found it among other New Old Stock home products at the estate of a home builder.

Update: A few questions came in asking what the four round holes are for. junqluv sent more photos!
There are four plastic cups that also come with the sink set. I believe that in “bar sinks” like these, the cups were typically used for drink embellishments like limes, pineapple, olives, etc.
I guess you could also stash things like spoons in the cups. The cups are removable for easy cleaning. junqluv isn’t sure what’s int he cardboard package shown above. He thinks the cups might have lids.
It’s great after all these years to continue to see woddities still coming up — keeps my blood pumping!
From the listing:
Rare NOS DISHMASTER DS-400 “Bar Boy” Stainless Steel Sink & NOS M-59 Faucet — and all the connections and white plastic cups that go In the sink too! Condition is New Old Stock ! This is a once in a lifetime find! Original shipping box from DISHMASTER Corporation in Bloomfield Hills Michigan. The DISHMASTER liquid soap has leaked on the box and onto the instruction manual in the M—58 Box – however it has done no damage at all to the faucet or parts. The sink is amazing and shiny perfect! I will put the original box (Big) in another larger box so you will have the original box too!
I was very tempted to keep this find hush hush and try to snap it up myself. However, I already own several vintage Dishmaster faucets — and my home bar is not plumbed — so out into the retro universe it goes!
Whoever gets this, be reminded that old plumbing fixtures may not be to current codes — consult pros to assess what you are dealing with so that you can make informed decisions how to handle. Be Safe/Renovate Safe 🙂
Thanks, junqluv! Luv this!
