        What type of sink is this Sign In/Join 
        posted
        What's the name of this sink. I thought it was farm sink but that just shows me the modern ones without the wall mount part. And when I search for apron, again it doesn't give me the back part.
        Thanks!

        Kohler says it's a Gilford Wink

        looks like a janitor sink extended back to mount on the wall, but I have actually seen similar sinks in a 100-year-old university hall bathroom. classic ancient bath that still had the original overhead-tank urinals.

        that would fit in a classic old farmhouse kitchen.


        sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

        It's damn expensive, that's for sure.

        I installed one just like this as a farmhouse sink.

        I noticed the description refers t-o the sink as being made of vitreous china. Wouldn't that make it susceptible t-o scratching if not breakage? Or is it assumed that some coating would have been applied?

        vitreous china is heavily glazed. that's pretty resistant. for example, the t.oilet, all vitreous except the seat (unless you are reading this from a jailhouse, in which case it's stainless steel, no seat, and the sink is in the top.)

        Swschrad, thanks for the explanation. If it weren't for the price, I'd really love to have a sink like that - if only for practical reasons. It's just so much easier to wash large produce, like zucchini and pumpkins. No wonder it was a farmhouse style.

        That's why i needed to know the type of sink it is so I can search for a cheaper one. The least expensive one I've found was for 650. I'm remodeling my kitchen and want to go for a country look. Thanks everybody!

        Maybe you could find one at places that have old things from old houses...I don't remember what they're called but I've seen TOH go there to find specific architectural elements that suited their projects. These rehab stores may have sinks as well, especially if you can find one located close to farm country, or maybe Amish or Mennonite country.
