Where to get a vintage style wall mount porcelain utility sink?

I want to have a porcelain or cast iron wall mount utility sink for my laundry room to use with a wall mount faucet. I found some made by Kohler and American Standard, but they don't have great reviews and are very expensive. Where can I find something similar or even an antique? thanks.

Have you tried eBay?

Look on eBay, but don't just look for a "utility sink." Look for a "farm sink" too, because often those are single-bowl wall-mount sinks like what you're describing. Do a search on antique farm sink, then another on vintage farm sink, and so on. You will have to craft your search to leave out the bad hits--for instance, write -faucet (minus symbol plus the word faucet, no space between them) to prevent faucets from coming up in response to your search, and so on.

As of now, a search on "antique utility sink" (no quotes) brought up one sink that might fit the bill:

And "antique farm sink" brought up a bunch of sinks, most of which have at least one drainboard, like this:
