Marcolo, for you: a monel sink!

Circus PeanutMarch 11, 2013

This Monel sink is extraordinary. We're doing something else in our butler's pantry, but if we weren't I'd snap this right up.

Damn. Too late. Can't work it in. No true vintagey goodness for me.

Gorgeous and a great price, too.

Circuspeanut I'm not sorry you went public. I had no idea what a monel sink was and now I do. I learn something new every day here. It's great...and dangerous. That makes me wish I had room for a fabulous garden shed.

Fab, is it not? *swoon*

My true basin love, however, would be a vintage original German Silver (nickel alloy) sink with that ultra-cool wiggly sink divide:

Wow, how do you find this stuff?! That's vintage? Cool. Love the wiggly divide too. Think it serves any purpose other than aesthetic?

Island -- yes, it's a vintage style that is very seldom found. Isn't it incredible? It seems most often associated with Victorian butlers' pantries. I don't know if the serpentine serves any real functional purpose -- but with that amount of sex appeal, who asks if she comes with a dowry?

What I like most about both the German silver and the Monel is that these are metals that don't carry the commercial connotation as stainless or the blueness of chrome.

There is a modern company who recreates these sinks for a hefty pricetag:

2/3 nickel, 1/3 copper = what's not to like?

Wow, what a great sink, thanks for sharing. I'm tempted for my cottage, but it would be quite a road trip to pick it up.

re the wiggly divide, do you think it's so you can lay flat a larger fry/sauce pan by fitting the handle into the wiggle?

cheers

Usually the S-curve held the overflow drain. A pipe came up from the bottom, open at the top, so that if the sink were about to overflow, the water could go into the top of the pipe.
