Polished brass shower mixer.

Polished brass shower mixer.

SOLD, But always searching for interesting pieces…
We are often asked for polished brass shower valves, but they are so few and far between that they seem to be completed on a Monday and gone within days.
This old Shanks mixer is stamped with the MWB logo of the Metropolitan Water Board. ( See this Wikipedia link for more details  – MWB )
At this point of the restoration, different directions can be taken based on your personal requirements. A handset and hose could be added, or the unit could be inverted and a rigid riser could be employed with a polished brass rose. The cradle could be lost completely or a diverter could be added. The choices are only limited by your imagination.
All the internal mechanics have been serviced and the seats re-ground. New 1/2″ washers have been fitted and the packing glands replaced.
Priced at £495 for an immediate sale.
