Vintage Fireclay Sink with Legs & Waste Drain Pull, J. L. Mott Ironworks



Fireclay console sink with a 7" wraparound backsplash on 2 porcelain enameled cast iron legs manufactured by J. L. Mott Ironworks. This sink has a 13"(L) x 17 3/4"(W) x 6"(H) basin with a small overflow hole along the rear wall. A pair of classic chrome hot and cold faucets with porcelain cross handles are mounted along the back of the basin. A rectangular opening is present between the faucets in which a waste drain pull with a porcelain button is installed. The sink has heavy crazing throughout the surface with minor nicks, scuffs, and scratches as expected from heavy use over time. The porcelain enameled cast iron legs are tapered and measure roughly 25" tall in place and have small nicks and chips present, showing surface rust formation where the enamel is missing (mostly along the top and bottom of the legs). This sink is in good overall condition for its age. Included with purchase are a pair of metal brackets used to mount the rear of the sink on a wall. This sink was salvaged from the Liberty Trust building in the heart of Downtown Roanoke, Virginia, as it is being converted to a boutique hotel. Also known as First National Bank, or the People's Federal Building, this building opened in 1910. At the time, it was the most technologically advanced building of the area, boasting state-of-the-art plumbing, heating, and an electric elevator. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. This building and items from it are featured on Season 11, Episode 10, of the DIY Network show, Salvage Dawgs. Weight: 158 lbs. Item Measurements: 22.5 (L) x24.88(W) x 38(H) As seen on Season 11, Episode 10.
