Selected Products by Other Firms.
Thomas Crapper & Co. began re-manufacturing our products of 100 years ago because we were so dissatisfied with so-called 'reproduction' bathroom fittings.
Many such 'reproductions' may be period-style but they are seldom authentic . Generally, they are modern basins, W.C.s, taps &c., the moulds for which having been altered in order that the products appear old-fashioned. A few ornate features are added while other details are inevitably omitted. There is mention of 'hand finishing' and 'attention to detail' but, usually, such goods are mass-produced.
Happily there are a few exceptions. Other firms have produced certain items of comparable quality and authenticity, which complement perfectly our W.C.s and washbasins. We are pleased to supply these selected fittings direct to our customers. In Mr. Crapper's day, the firm used to supply selected wares from Twyfords, Royal Doulton, George Jennings (et al) - but ONLY IF HE APPROVED!
