These two versions of the statuesque Victorian tub filler feature cross-handle faucets and a cradle for a hand shower. Splurge: Stand-alone Sculpture
This large-scale Edwardian-style floor-mounted tub filler, made in England, stands on exposed legs and rises nearly a foot above the tub's rim. It has a polished-nickel finish over all-brass construction, a 5-foot hose, and porcelain trim on its diverter lever and cross handles. A generous ceramic disc valve is designed for fast tub filling. Comes with a lifetime warranty.
