Crane Bathtub Faucet Circa 1948
Posted by Beth on October 11, 1999 at 14:59:15:
We just bought a Cape Cod style house this past May, which was built in the late 1940's.
The downstairs bathroom, which has the original plumbing, broke. More specifically, the diverter in the bathtub faucet
snapped off at the stem. The fixture is a Crane. We have looked all over Northern Virginia for a replacement... with no
luck. We would like to replace with an original Crane fixture, if possible. Otherwise, we have to have
the old pipes changed to the modern gage. Being a new home owner of an old house- we cannot afford to have
the plumbing changed.
Any suggestions? Oh- BTW, we tried having it brass saudered- this lasted for about 1 month, and
then the stem snapped off of the diverter circle- shaped piece again.
Thanks!!!
