Buying a reproduction sink in any of these materials means you're more likely to find plumbing hardware that will fit its dimensions, especially hole spacing. If you're lucky enough to find a salvaged sink with its original fixtures, remember that you'll probably need to fix a leak or two and find adapters to hook it up to your plumbing system.
Laura and John Lazet had already repaired decades' worth of remuddles to their mid-1800s farmhouse in Mason, Michigan, by the time they decided to tackle the kitchen. They knew they would keep the room's design aligned with the rest of the house. They were also fortunate enough to have found a sketch of the kitchen's early layout and have a few original, untouched pantry doors on which to model the cabinets.
Porcelain enameling, the process of applying ground glass to hot metal, has been used for ornament for hundreds of years, but it wasn't until about 120 years ago that manufacturers figured out how to fire it onto heavy cast iron. By the 1920s cast iron was by far the most popular material for sinks. Early models were supported in front by iron legs, shaped to resemble furniture legs. Of course they were all white, as befit the national mania for antiseptic surfaces.
