A genuine vintage set of brass mixer taps. Made by the Barking Brassware Company in London, England. Deck mounted with 1/2 BSP feed pipes. Featuring the patented'Bi-Flo' design that channels hot and cold water feeds through separate cavities within the tap and spout.
This was a groundbreaking development that stopped the problem of high pressure, cold water feeds flowing back into the hot water pipework, and thus preventing the flow of hot water. It also ensured that the spout was always cool to touch, even with very hot water being run for long periods. Approximately 7" between feed pipe centres and 7" of spout reach. Gently buffed to yield a gleaming finish.All our taps have had the following work completed. Old finish chemically removed by licensed and environmentally responsible local firm. Tap seats re-machined to obviate the risk of slow drips, as is common on old taps. New compressed fibre washers cut to size by hand using imperial wad punches on a fly press.
Spindles lathe turned to meet specific tolerances. Gland nut packing repacked in the traditional method using graphite string. This stops water leaking from below the handles. Polished, again by hand, using a polishing lathe. See our other listings for more stunning English taps.
We operate a small machine shop and can complete custom machining and modifications. We can also get any tap plated in chrome, nickel or copper. We operate a small engineering workshop and can carry out any modifications required.
