Try Price Pfister -- not that I like them, but the set up looks similar.
And in case you're not aware, check the 'anti scald device' to make sure it's adjusted where you want it. Its a plastic piece that prevents the handle from turning all the way over to the HOT position. You pull it out, turn it counter clockwise, reinstall it. Very basic, very simple. But you may notice that you don't get hot water from the shower if it isn't adjusted to give you hot water from the shower.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Re-mdlr,

I dont think it is that brand, someone awhile back had told me that it was a certain brand that wasnt as popular and the brand started with a V, maybe versa or something similar. The prife pfister brands dont have the metal piece coming out of the center of the white.
I would e-mail that picture to some of the plumbing contractors in your area. If you have this kind of faucet in your house, then they were sold in your area and lots of people in your city have them. The local plumbers would have seen them before and would know which parts fit them and what brand name they were sold under.
Lots of times a product like a faucet will be manufactured by several different companies and sold by the legal entity that orchestrates the manufacturing and packaging process. One company will cast the bronze faucet bodies under contract, another company will do the machining required to the bronze and brass parts, and a third company will assemble the parts to make the faucet and put the faucet and literature in it's packaging. The company that contracted to have the bronze cast, the parts machined and the faucets assembled and packaged then names the faucet whatever it wants... like Home Depot's "Glacier Bay" for example. As long as the 17 year patent on the faucet closure design has expired, anyone can make a Moen or a Delta faucet, and Moen or Delta parts will fit and work properly in their faucets.
(They just can't put the "Moen" or "Delta" name or logo on their faucets.)This message has been edited. Last edited by: Nestor,

that is absolutely a Price Pfister, no question about it. have installed two in the past couple years. you are lucky, and the extention for the handle connection is steel on yours. mine are all plastic. you are ready for an escutcheon plate and handle. the handle has a single screw connecting with that extention, you need a hex key wrench to tighten it.
the anti-scald adjustment is the outer piece of that black plastic dingus. pull it straight out, turn the removeable chunk about "three clicks" left, and reinstall. now test the maximum high temp. if it's safe but not hot enough, add another "click" detent in the locking teeth at a time until it's just a hair too hot IMPHO.
now you have time to go YIKE! and turn it down without scalding, but it's hot enough to fill the mop bucket or carpet cleaner tank and have it work well.This message has been edited. Last edited by: swschrad,
