Farmhouse Style Kitchen sinks from the teens and , 20's have become very popular items so we try to stock them as much as possible. But, we find they are very difficult to find in good, useable original condition. We do not buy or offer sinks that have gray or black worn through areas in the basin where the enamel has been scoured or chipped away. If there is a big chip out of a part of the drainboard, the apron or the backsplash, the sink is "toast". Unfortunately, most of the old farmhouse sinks we see or hear about are damaged like this. We do not believe that it is a practical option to have a kitchen sink "re-porcelainized" or "re-glazed" due to the rough useage they receive. So, all you will find here are examples in good shape. Even still, the ones we offer will all show much evidence of wear such as scratches, etching, many minute nick type chips, some edge chips, and dullness on the working surfaces, especially the drainboards and in the basin. These are the BEST sinks we can find! You will find them very useable and impressive, even with their signs of "old age".
Note- We only sell one type of farmhouse sink, and that is the classic "kitchen farmhouse" with integral single or dual drainboards, and a single, somewhat shallow basin. This type has a back splash, and the signature feature of a "farmhouse sink", apron front and sides. We often see drainboard type sinks, with or with out a backsplash, with NO apron front and sides referred to as a farmhouse sink, but they are not "farmhouse". That is a drainboard type kitchen sink, but NOT a farmhouse sink. Farmhouse sinks have an apron front, and sides, and the old ones were freestanding off the wall, suspended only by hidden brackets, or supported on legs.
SORRY BUT WE HAVE NOT FOUND ANY GOOD FH SINKS IN A WHILE NOW. SO WE HAVE NONE FOR SALE.
We have a few hard to find ca.1920-30 kitchen sink faucets. These faucets are all good ones, in old original condition, or recently re-nickel plated. These are all the classic kitchen sink faucet made to mount on the vertical back splash of a farmhouse sink, in holes set 8" on centers. The spout pivots on all of these, and there may or may not be a soap dish incorporated. These all date from the teens, the 20s or the 30s.
If you see one you like, speak up. Prices range from around $500 to around $750 for one that is extra nice in old hardly used like new condition (original nickel plating).
