Lots of taps in the UK come in hot and cold pillar style. Traditional styles are almost always produced with the option of pillar style. Try Googling "basin pillar taps" and see what that produces!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mary Jo Bowling added this to Vintage Style: High-Tank Toilets
The first high-tank toilets were installed in private homes during the Victorian era. The tanks had to be high, because they used gravity to build up water pressure to flush.This bathroom, by London designer Celia James, features what could be considered a crown jewel of a toilet. The toilet itself has a dragon-head base and a scalloped cistern perched near the room’s crown molding atop shiny brass brackets and plumbing pipes. The pull chain has a ceramic handle (back in the day, some of the handles were quite elaborate) and stabilizing brackets. In this room, kitted out with vintage tiles and fixtures, a sleek, modern toilet would just not be the same.
