Victorian Bathrooms

This page is dedicated to show you different bathroom designs that were available in the Victorian era. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so here's several pictures from trade catalogues of that era. Some of the companies that made these antique plumbing fixtures new at the time were companies like Standard Manufacturing, JL Mott, Peck brothers, FW Webb, Meyer Sniffen, Crane, DL Wolff and James B Clow to name a few

The Victorian era was an amazing time with so many things done in excess with all the bells and whistles and adornments and the new creation of indoor plumbing was so special so plumbing and iron works manufacturers went crazy on these items.

Above is a great illustration of a JL Mott bathroom design with some great details. The walls have a beautiful geometric floral designed border above a plainer wall papered fill with dark walnut stained wainscoting, with matching paneled hooded needlebath shower and tub combo, Tile flooring, oriental rug with a washout toilet bowl and wooden high tank, wood paneled sitz bath and carerra marble sink with marble splash, hot and cold seperate faucets on a wood cabinet with an oval nickel plated mirror and 2 acid etched shade an a pair of gas sconces. This is a period bathroom design. circa 1888

Below are more images of similar bathrooms but from approximately 10 years earlier, with high Victorian artistic decorations.
