Does anyone have any suggestions for finding this sink? I found the picture on a blog, but there was no info on where to buy. The blog also seems a bit sketchy, so I don't want to post or contact the owner.

It could be a vintage sink. Search "porcelain console bathroom sink".

Here's a designer who has used a similar, but smaller, vintage sink. You could contact her to see if this is an original repurposed or a reproduction.

I have a similar sink and am in the Northern Nj area. If you are near me you can have it for cheap--$70--off number I know..it just popped into my head. The brand is Pozzi Ginori. I bought it from someone and while beautiful I have decided it is not practical for my lifestyle which includes a house full of young boys (one day but it def. ain't now). Note this sink only has two legs. Needs brackets for the wall.

Good find, but yikes on the price, especially for the number you need. Do some research for fire-clay, it can chip.

I might just have my cabinet maker build a wood frame with 4 legs, then put a white top on it. Would look very similar for a lot less. The house it is going into is being built to look like at neo-classical georgian from 1890-1910. So the wood will also work.

found this on houzz as well

I saw a picture of a painted wooden console when I was searching, that's a great idea if you have a good cabinet maker. Your home sounds wonderful, love that style!!

bluenan - This is what the outside looks like.. 4.5 years of building so far, we are paying as we go which takes much longer than getting a loan. But, at least all the construction will be 100% paid for :-).

OMG!! That is absolutely magnificent! It's so wonderful to see a home that is historically based, carefully fitted into an established setting and slowly and deliberately completed. Kudos to you for your patience and dedication, you will have an incredible home.

Check signaturehardware.com. I know they have a two-legged version that's similar for around $550.

This is a good low cost option.. and it would fit the style of the home. My master bath has dual sinks about 5-6' apart on a 10' wall. We want things to be very simple as far as the style inside..

That's a lovely idea, but I do think that your home deserves a little bit more elegance.

My builder/cabinet maker has some ideas. He suggested a farmhouse table styled vanity with a lower shelf. If I decided I wanted doors later, he would be able to add them.

Something similar to this

Try something different,
Use PIETRE DURE (Italian term) Vanity Top for your bathroom. Natural stone's tops with beautifully inlaid real gemstones. The motifs you may see are real stones inlaid into the marble.

Your builder/cabinet maker is spot on with his idea. That's a lovely, lovely table/vanity. Perfect!

Keep in mind when you purchase an open pedestal sink you have to factor in the cost of the water supply, trim, and drain that is exposed underneath to match your faucet ----those can run about $250 and up in addition to the faucet plumbing and then the sink base itself.
