Maybe American Standard?
I was recently in a museum in Toronto Canada (a mansion, actually) and ran across the toilet shown in the picture. My question is, can anyone ID it? Look at the various odd fittings, what are the functions?
God only knows what that toilet could be....
possibley on old Chase......or Crane....
the only thing Iknow for sure is I
would not touch that one
with a ten foot pole
Looks like it has a built in-water cooled Beer Can holder.
Well Duh!Looks like it has a built in-water cooled Beer Can holder.
That's exactly what that is. There were many water cooled beer can holders on toilets made by Fredrickson.
I'm sure Homer would have have been proud to have a water cooled beer can holder like that.
If Al Bundy could have gotten that one, he might have given up on the Ferguson. In any case, since there is apparently no pipe leaving the bowl to go to a tank, the toilet must have a submerged inlet, and would not pass any plumbing codes, regardless of the secondary function.
Thanks to all who weighed in. Looking at the thing again, (it dates to ca 1903) it looks like the oval in back is indeed an air vent (could be useful for some visitors to my house!). That supply pipe looks pretty hefty, what if that "beer can holder" housed some type of early Flushometer like those used on commercial toilets today?
