Antique Taps and Accessories

Although the concept of using metal valves to control water flow had been in existence since the Ancient Romans, it was not until the 19th Century that running water became a requirement for the home. Alongside medical and scientific breakthroughs, our Victorian forebears became more switched on to the importance of hygiene – however, the luxury of toilets, taps, showers and baths was only available to a select few. In the present day, Stiffkey Bathrooms stock a wide range of antique bath taps that include landmark inventions such as the mixer tap, introduced in 1880. With a number of bathroom accessories also available, browse our bespoke collection of antique bathroom cabinets, mirrors, bath bridges and toilet pull handles.
