This is a beautiful pair of vintage style copper and brass taps, hand made and water pressure tested for leaks. This pair have very small tap heads, ideally suitable for a small basin perhaps in a cloakroom or camper van. (the head on its own is 7.5cm in height and 5cm projection). These taps have an industrial rustic feel with copper pipework and brass tap heads and come supplied with 6 fitting screws and would look fabulous with any smaller basin or sink or alongside the French copper bathroom/kitchen basin sinks in the 'Copper Basins, Sinks & Taps' section of our website shop. 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: These taps are fixed by screws from the top, not from a nut underneath, they may not be suitable for a quartz/granite/marble/slate 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 hand made taps have been well made and have a nicely polished finish. If you prefer the more natural patina of copper and brass then these can be achieved by leaving the taps unpolished, over time they will darken to the natural brown copper colour. These are small taps with 15mm standard UK fittings which are suitable for bathroom basins, small kitchen sinks and camper van conversions but may not be suitable for baths due to their small size. In addition, most baths have a different size pipe connection; check with your plumber first if these intended for a bath and check the measurements. Made to measure at no extra cost, please see the following listing. Made to Measure Brass and Copper Kitchen or Bathroom Taps T39 – All Things French Store

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I only want one tap, can I buy these individually?
-Yes you can, please see the following listing. Rustic Style Brass and Copper Kitchen or Bathroom Tap – All Things French Store

These measurements are not suitable for me, can these taps be made to my own measurements?
-Yes, these taps can be made to measure at no extra cost. Please see the following listing. Made to Measure Brass and Copper Kitchen or Bathroom Taps T39 – All Things French Store

Do you sell any other style of copper and brass taps?
-Yes we do. See the 'Copper Basins, Sinks & Taps' section of our website shop  where you will find 4 or 5 different styles as well as a beautiful mixer tap in copper and brass.

What size are these taps?
-These taps have a small tap head, best suited to a smaller basin or sink, they may be too small for some kitchen sinks, see measurements on the photographs for exact sizes.

The tap head is too small for my requirements, do you sell a chunkier tap?
-Yes we do, these taps are made from a dainty small tap head with 15mm copper pipework, we sell other taps in both 1/2 inch size and a chunkier 3/4 inch size which have thicker 22mm pipe rather than the standard 15mm as well as 2 other slightly larger styles. See the 'Copper Basins, Sinks & Taps' section of our website shop

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

Can these taps be fitted directly into a basin or sink?
-No, these taps does 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 taps suitable for a bath?
-These taps will be suitable for some baths, although this style is generally sold for basins and sinks firstly because the taps are too small for a bath and secondly as they have a water inlet pipe which is 15mm. 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.

Can these taps be fitted to a quartz, slate or marble type counter top?
-No, they cannot be fitted to this type of worktop as they are fitted from above and these type of countertops would not take the 6 small drill holes required. We are looking to develop a tap for these types of counters but this is still in the design stage.

Can these be fitted in a camper van?
-Yes these can be fitted in a camper van, we have sold many of these for camper van and horse box conversions. Camper van pipework is usually smaller than standard 15mm so you will need to use reducing fittings to join them to the inlet pipes. These are readily available at any plumbers or DIY merchant.

Can I use these as outdoor taps?
-Yes, these taps are suitable for outdoor use.

How do I connect these to my water inlet under my sink or basin?
-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 pipes can be attached to the tail ends by soldering, compression fittings or push fit fitments.

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 through 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 our partner company, Copper Basins and Taps, run 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 using the online contact form or message us via live chat
