A rare pair of reclaimed antique surgeon lever taps. Very large with 3/4 BSP feed pipes. Mechanical quarter turn levers, operated by 7 inch levers. Features a lever operated spout selector that allows user to chose between jet flow or shower output. Made by Baxendale & Co Ltd.In the early 1900's. Solid brass and manufactured in England.
Gently buffed to yield a gleaming finish. All our taps have had the following work completed. Old finish chemically removed by a licensed and environmentally responsible local firm. Tap seats re-machined to obviate the risk of slow drips, as is common on old taps.
New compressed fibre washers have been cut to size by hand using imperial wad punches on a fly press. Spindles are lathe turned to ensure they meet specific tolerances. Gland nut packing is repacked in the traditional way using graphite string. This stops water leaking from below the handles. Polished, again by hand, using a polishing lathe.See our other listings for more stunning English taps. We operate a small machine shop and can complete custom machining and modifications.
