Buy a new sink or a vintage sink?
I have been looking at sinks. I really, really like the vintage 1920s farmhouse porcelain cast-iron sinks - with the large apron.
I found one in good shape with a double-basin. The norm price for these are crazy expensive and the one I found is no exception.
Question....because my friends do NOT appreciate vintage and I don't want to feel like I'm making a horrible mistake, would you buy a vintage sink or buy a new one?
Please elaborate as to the 'why' for your decision.
Two of my friends were aghast and responded with, "Yeah - but - it's OLD!" or "Buy a new one that looks old!", "It's not pristine..." I was responded with, "Yeah, that's kind of the point...."
So now I'm second guessing myself.
Here's a photo of the sink in question...it even has the legs!
What would you (or did you?) do and why?
