Today we are happy to offer for sale a beautiful vintage 1980’s Sherle Wagner Water Lilies ceramic bathroom sink basin! A bit of info on Sherle Wagner:
Sherle Wagner founded his company with his wife Rose in 1945 for the purpose of offering extraordinary bathroom fixtures, accessories and hardware. An architect by training, he recognized that the utilitarian does not have to be mundane. Mr. Wagner thus elevated often-overlooked bath elements to an elegance not previously found on the market. First offering an exquisite dolphin faucet with a 24-karat gold finish, Mr. Wagner’s goal was to offer a discerning clientele the opportunity to “complete the ultimate luxury bathroom.” Exquisite craftsmanship and old-world techniques were of utmost importance in presenting his glorious designs.
Mr. Wagner continued his strong appreciation for art and architecture throughout his life. His finely trained and sensitive eye established the foundation for the company’s exquisite aesthetic, which is now synonymous with the finest in taste and craftsmanship.
Soon Sherle Wagner was able to count Presidents and movie stars among his glamorous clientele. Today, each piece from our broad collection is still meticulously fabricated in small batches using old-world techniques in our facility located here in the United States.
This classic sink basin is finely crafted and detailed. Made in Italy, the piece features an oval ceramic body with curved and molded edge, with hand-painted decorations of lovely water lilies on a regal royal blue ground and adorned with delicate butterflies. Marked “Sherle Wagner Italy”.
Sink basin presents well and is in good vintage, used, condition, with wear and patina commensurate with age and use. There is minor loss to painted finish in the area below faucet; there is a stable (and hard to notice) hairline crack across the back of basin, which does not affect water tightness. Add elegance and style to any elegant powder room or bathroom with this beautiful sink…Fresh to the market!
