Marlborough Bath/Shower Mixer




Many of the Bath Shower Mixer taps on the market to-day are in fact copies of models from the Thirties, or even much later. That is why several “period-style” mixers do not look quite right for their proportions. The dimensions and profiles are actually from the 1930s -1950s rather than those of the Victorian or Edwardian eras, others are entirely modern-day creations. Most Victorians were content with a pair of bath taps, however today many people want a hand spray as well. Therefore we have produced a new mixer set with the correct proportions and we have added many authentic flourishes from the period. For instance, note the china parts - made of earthenware not vitreous china; the tap ‘headworks’, matching those on our washbasin taps; the early-pattern handset and rose is an uncommon design, elegant and authentic. The graceful ‘swan neck’ hand spray cradle is an exact copy of a rare original, which brings the handset forward so that any drips fall into the bath. The Thomas Crapper Bath Shower Mixer is engineered in solid brass, replete with period details but incorporating modern technology in the form of ceramic-disc cartridges for ease of maintenance. It is available with either wall or deck unions and can be supplied in polished brass, nickel or chrome plate finishes,
