This is a bespoke, made to measure pair of vintage style taps (2 taps) which have copper pipework and 1/2 inch brass tap heads with detachable nozzles. These kitchen or bathroom taps comes supplied with 6 fitting screws and would look fabulous with any Belfast sink or alongside the French copper basin and sinks available on our website. All the taps we sell are rustic in design and do not have aerators so the flow of water is a continuous stream similar to that of an outdoor tap.
FITTING: As this pair is fixed by screws from the top, not from nuts underneath, they are not suitable for a quartz, marble, slate or granite top. These are suitable for wooden and laminate worktops. Please check with your fitter or message for advice before buying if you are unsure. These have been well made and have a nicely polished finish, they come in one piece not in separate pieces and do not come apart. These have 15mm standard UK copper water inlet pipes which are suitable for bathroom basins, kitchen sinks, camper van conversions and outdoor sinks but may not be suitable for some baths which have a different size pipe connection, check before buying if these are for a bath.
DISPATCH TIME can vary as we travel between the UK and France regularly during the Summer months, please check the estimated delivery date for details. This is usually 3-5 working days but can occasionally be a little longer when we are away. If your order is urgent please contact us before purchase for the first available dispatch day as we can often dispatch these more quickly between Oct-March when we are in the UK full time.

Total height including tap head and spout (excluding fittings below) minimum 22cm maximum 34cm
Total measurement from tap outlet to base of tap fitment with nozzle attached min 5cm max 23cm
Outlet projection from pipe centre to tap outlet centre minimum 17cm maximum 19cm

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I buy just one of these taps?
-Yes, for a single tap see listing Antique Style Copper and Brass Bathroom or Kitchen Tap – All Things French Store

I would like to buy more than the number of taps listed as available. Do you have any more than the listing shows?
-Yes we do. We limit the number of taps on each listing in order to keep to our dispatch times but we do have at least 6 of each style of tap ready to make. Please contact us if you want to buy more than the number available and we will increase the listing.

If the taps are unsuitable, can I return them for a refund?
-This specific listing is for custom size made to measure taps which are made specifically to your own measurements therefore they are generally not refundable. However, if you are having a problem with suitability please feel free to contact us through live chat or the contact form and we will always do our best to help resolve any problems or give advice before buying.

The measurements available are not suitable for me, can the taps be made any taller?
-These taps cannot be made any taller as the 15mm copper pipework would not be strong enough. However, we have another style of tap which has 22mm copper pipework meaning it can be made taller. See the tap section of our website.

Do you sell any other style of copper and brass taps?
-Yes we do. See Copper and Brass Handmade Taps – All Things French Store where you will find 4 or 5 different styles including single and pairs of pillar taps, more wall mounted taps as well as a beautiful mixer tap in copper and brass.

What size is this tap?
-Please see measurements on the photographs in the listing for exact sizes.

What size is the water inlet pipework?
-All our taps have the standard 15mm water inlet pipework, this is the pipe below the countertop where the water is connected. 

Can these be fitted directly into a basin or sink?
-No, these taps do not fit into basin or sink pre cast holes. These are designed to fit onto a countertop. These are fitted by screwing the brass base into the top of the counter from above using the screws provided. These are not fitted using back nuts.

Are these suitable for a bath?
-These taps will be suitable for some baths, although this style is generally sold for basins and sinks as it has a water inlet pipe which is a 15mm diameter. Some baths, particularly in older houses have a water inlet pipe of 22mm. Please check with your plumber or fitter if you are unsure of your pipe size if you are buying for a bath, or message us for advice.

Can these be fitted in a shepherds hut or camper van?
-Yes, all our taps can be fitted in a shepherds hut, we have sold many of these for camper vans, shepherds huts and horse box conversions. NB. Camper van pipework is usually smaller than standard 15mm so you will need to use a reducing fitting to join this to the inlet pipe. These are readily available at any plumbers or DIY merchant.

Can I use your taps as outdoor taps?
-Yes, all the taps we make are suitable for outdoor use.

How do I connect these to my water inlet?
- These are sold as complete tap fittings which have the standard UK 15mm copper pipes attached below the counter where they are fitted. Your water inlet pipe can be attached to the tail ends by soldering, compression fittings or push fit fitments.

Can your taps be fitted to a quartz, slate or marble type counter top?
-No, none of our taps can be fitted to this type of worktop as they are fitted from above and these type of countertops would not take the small drill holes required. We are looking to develop a tap for these types of counters but this is still in the design stage.

How often will I need to polish my taps to keep them shiny and what should I use?
- Copper and brass are metals that naturally tarnish over time if left unpolished. A quick buff up every week or 2 will keep it shiny. We use Brasso wadding to keep our taps shiny. This is available at most supermarkets. Rub some wadding over the taps, let it dry for 15 minutes and buff it off with a yellow duster. If you would prefer the more rustic natural brown patina of copper then leave them unpolished and this colour will develop over time.

When will my order arrive?
-All our taps are made to order with a usual dispatch time of 3-5 days. However, this can occasionally vary as we travel between the UK and France regularly between April-October. Please check the listing for an up-to-date delivery
estimate. Contact us via the online contact form or live chat before buying if your order is urgent as these can also often be sent earlier especially when we are home in the Winter full time. All our taps are posted by Royal Mail Tracked 48 or 24 if urgent.

I have another question or I need some more advice about what tap to buy, can you help?
-Yes we can. These are made by Martin who is a gas engineer and plumber. He is more than happy to answer questions regarding tap size, style and fitting. Please contact us via live chat or online contact form


I would like to talk to a real person about my requirements, is it possible to call you?
-Yes it is. As we spend several months of the year in France the quickest way to contact us is usually via live chat where you will be spoken to by Louise or Martin not a chat bot. This is the safest way to discuss your order as it protects both ourselves as a seller and yourself as a buyer and keeps a record of all conversations. When we are at home we are usually in our workshop, which is quite noisy so we do not always hear the phone or Martin is on a callout. If you would like to talk to us about your requirements please either leave a message on our answerphone 01772 494985 or send us your contact details on live chat, contact form or email and a brief description of your question and we will call you back.

International Shipping Information

International shipping is not available at checkout as standard for taps and basins, as these are made with UK fitting sizes which may not fit the plumbing in other countries. However, we are happy to accept enquires via our online contact form to discuss your requirements.
