    Default Antique Clawfoot Tub Faucet setup

    Talked to my mom yesterday. They just completely gutted their bathroom and installed an old claw foot that they purchased at an auction. The problem they are running into now is that they cannot find a faucet that fits. I'll see if I can get some pics and measurements next time I make the drive down to visit. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    "OLD" clawfoor tubs typically have to holes 3 3/4" apart for the faucet. There are many faucets, (from very inexpensive to super expensive, it depends on how much you want to pay), which are either made for it or can be adapted, BUT, they MUST have a "gooseneck spout" which comes up above the rim of the tub. If it is one without holes then there are even more made for that type of tub, but almost all are "expensive".
