Description

This beautiful, vitreous china pedestal sink was manufactured by Thomas Maddock's Sons Company of Trenton, New Jersey, patented in 1904. The 30" wide sink top features a clean, rectangular shape. A maker's mark reads, "Made in U.S.A. Tho's Maddock's Son's Co. Trenton, N.J. Pat. Apr. 5, 1904, Vitreous".
The sink has the original nickel-plated faucet and overflow strainer, as well as some partial hardware. The vitreous china handles are not intact; however, the bases are still present. The lifting waste-plug was not with this sink at the time of salvage.

The sink measures 30.25" W x 24" L The sink basin measures 18" W x 11 ¾" L x 6 ¾" deep with an anti-splash rim.

Condition: This sink is in good condition. There are multiple small, hairline, cracks in the glaze on the top surface of the sink. A deeper crack radiates from the back of one faucet to the underside of where the faucet is mounted.
The nickel-plated hardware has developed a verdigris patina. Around the vitreous china hot/cold handle bases, mineral buildup is present, removable with the proper cleaner.

History: This sink was salvaged from Laverock Hill Estate in Glenside, Pennsylvania. There, we salvaged materials from an 1890's mansion that was remodeled in 1915 by architect Charles A. Platt. Prior to renovation, this Georgian mansion was formerly known as "Falcon Hill", or the "Sims Estate". Items from this job are featured on Season 9, Episode 2 of the DIY Network show "Salvage Dawgs".

Item Measurements: 30.25"L x 24"W x 15"H
