*RESERVED* Reclaimed Twyfords Duramant 'Old Ivory' Sink (prettyinsink)
Interesting information (from 1923) with regards to the Duramant name -
Heavy Earthenware. Similar to Vitromant but thicker, heavier and stronger. 'Well worth a small extra cost where increased strength is desirable.'
Introduced around 1923 when it first appeared in the new comprehensive Twyfords 'L' Catalogue.
Duramant was, it was claimed (sadly not in this instance, some cosmetic crazing can be seen in the attached photos), to have 'the appearance of fine earthenware, with a rich glossy surface guaranteed not to craze or discolour and pure white through the whole thickness of the material. Eminently suitable for hotels, restaurants, offices, banks and other public or semi public buildings and also for domestic installations of the higher grade.'
Completely withdrawn from production in 1960 in favour of Ceramant Vitreous China.
Dimensions: L 30 3/4" x W 19" x H 12"
