re-using old bath fixtures

at the claw foot tub we are all about recycling. we have a vintage stove, two (at the moment, though we have had more) old claw foot tubs, and this wonderful old pedestal sink. we use ours for display, but any of them could be used in a home. the trick is to work with a builder and plumber who are comfortable with re-using old bath fixtures, AND to find appropriate faucets and fixtures for them so that they look right and work right.

when i am looking for something special i always call my friend donna at nor'east architectural salvage in new hampshire (noreast1.com). i have yet to have a salvage question that donna couldn't answer! AND they sell new, german-made faucets for their salvaged bath fixtures.
