The Victorians cleaned up under rainhead "roses" atop exposed nickel risers with attached hand showers. Splurge: High-rise Profile
Porcelain levers, an exposed mixer, and a hand-polished nickel finish give this single-stem French-made unit its true vintage style. The 8-inch rose, fed by a large valve, is designed to drench; the handheld shower has a porcelain handle and 60-inch hose.
