Mystery Sink


I'm trying to identify a porcelain pedestal sink I bought a year ago from a 2nd hand outlet in Pennsylvania. It's really nice but I lost a metal support piece. I hope by ID'ing the sink I can get a replacement part. I've been back to that store but in classic Northeast PA fashion they denied selling me a sink at all. And I had a receipt with me. Lol!

Here are some pics.

https://photos.google.com/album/AF1Q...qsL1xcd0c-c5j3

It's 28.5 wide by 19.75 deep. There are almost no markings on it except for a string of numbers: 130 08 05 15 stamped into the sink bottom. It looks like a Kohler but Kohlers have good markings on them.

Any sink sleuths out there? Also, are these metal support pieces "universal". Home Depot said no to that. Are they necessary since the sink will be supported on the wall?

It works for you because youíre logged in to your account. Log out of your Google account then click on that link. Youíll see what others see - your link opening to a Google account log in page.

Edit:
I see you later pasted your images directly.

I also have a Kohler sink and toilet. The Kohler name was still visible on ours but I didnít know the model. I was able to identify it by looking at photos on the Kohler website. Maybe you could try doing that.

Isn't the metal support something you can make yourself? Home Depot sells various sizes and shapes of angle, flat bar, round bar, etc.

Re: Mystery Sink


If you cant find a model and brand then you are stuck finding or making something that will work
So set it up side down on the floor and take pictures of the back and bottom
Set a square on the floor and against the back and measure the working room you have back there.
