Hard to find toilet seat with odd accessories


I am trying to find a replacement toilet seat for my toilet. It has a bar that is attached to the holes where a "normal" seat would go. And the seat is attached to the bar with two hinges.

There is no branding on the toilet, though I am certain it is of european design and manufacturer. It has the look of an Eljer toilet as a comparison.

Can anyone of you help me identify it and if possible source a replacement seat?

have you checked the center to center measurement of the bolts that hold it to the toilet? if its the same as a regular seat just replace it with a new soft close seat.

check this site out. their seats will mount anywhere from 5.2-7.2 inches on center. they also have variations available from 3-10 inch centers.
