Thank you for your interest in our project. This sink is original to the house - 1920's German silver, that we had the finish restored and kept the dents for character.

What are the dimensions of this house? We live in a brick cape that is 24 feet wide and 36 feet deep, which I guess is pretty standard for when it was built in 1940, and we can't go any wider. Your proportions look fantastic so I was wondering what base you were working with.

This project is in storage and is not readily accessible, so unfortunately the original dimensions are not available to us. With that said each project would have to go thru FAR calculations for the specific municipality it is in, to determine if anything can be built on the site so that would impact design ideas.

Thank you for your interest in our project. The homeowners worked with and interior designer: RLH Studio in Minneapolis. So the piece was either something they already had or specified by the designer.

This particular client had an extensive antiques collection and the mirror was part of that collection. Thank you for asking!
