George Sakier (American 1897-1988) is best known for his moderne glassware designs for Fostoria Glass Company during the Art Deco period. His cubist and streamlined designs were very modernistic for the times. Sakier also designed this incredible standing sink for the American Radiator and Standard Sanitary Corporation of Pittsburgh, PA. Ours is in a lovely rose colored porcelain, with chrome accents. The porcelain is in superb condition. The chrome details are original, and show some plating wear. They can easily be re-plated, if desired. The tubular stand features towel bars on each side, and looks great. The sink is part of the Metropolitan Museum collection, and is featured in the exhibit and accompanying book "American Modern 1925-1940 Design For A New Age" by J. Stewart Johnson.
