New Victorian back-to-wall WC by Perrin & Rowe
Perrin & Rowe has introduced its new chinaware design, in the form of a Victorian back-to-wall pan: now available to retailers.
100% British made, the new Victorian cistern and pan naturally embrace the humble detailing long associated with the bourgeois era. Presenting a sophisticated simplicity that will suit any bathroom interior, it is crafted using the highest quality Cornish porcelain which is then expertly cast and glazed.
Each individual piece of china is then kiln fired three times reaching temperatures of 1200C, which efficiently sets the glaze to create a lustrous, highly durable finish.
With a rich depth of 580mm and width of 370mm, this piece offers a distinctly classical profile with clear identity. Designed to fit straight on the wall, this style of lavatory will ensure all plumbing and waste pipes are hidden from view. The cistern is also designed to be concealed within the wall itself to strengthen aesthetic appeal, as well as reclaim valuable floor space: ideal for a compact bathroom!
David Cole, Sales Director, Perrin & Rowe says: "2016 trends show that quality sanitaryware, brassware and coordinating accessories are being repositioned as the new 'luxury' option for the bathroom. As a result, we are experiencing a strong demand for our classically styled white sanitaryware, showing that all you really need is a few inspirational pieces, such as a new Victorian lavatory, to lift the entire look of a bathroom."
Consistent with its longstanding heritage, the Perrin & Rowe Bathroom Chinaware Collection includes basins, bowls, lavatories and cisterns manufactured exclusively in Perrin & Rowe's own factory in the heart of English pottery country.
