Unlike the bathroom lavatory, which might have been made of marble or china with fluted edges, the kitchen sink was likely to be prosaic in both shape and material, and to have become chipped and stained over the years. So when it came time to update the rest of the room, off it went to the local landfill.
Even the most exacting old-house owners determined that every last spice jar and cup hook in their kitchen should be genuinely historic may quail when it comes to choosing an appropriate kitchen sink Salvage dealers often stock only a handful, compared to dozens of clawfoot tubs and lavatories. "I don't get a lot in," says Tom Sundheim of Architectural Artifacts in Denver. "The kitchen was always the first room that anyone remodeled."
Yes, soapstone and slate sinks were found in farmhouses, but probably not in the Midwest or on the West Coast. Soapstone is quarried exclusively in Vermont (although some today come from Brazil). Slate has more widespread sources, along the Appalachians in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Vermont, and Maine.
