1966 aqua porcelain kitchen-sink with egg shaped bowls and stick-shift faucet
Yowza — now a genuine treat — among the most tasty looking classic woddities in a little while. Reader Tami seen this unique aqua American Standard porcelain sink recorded available for sale on E Bay. The sink’s twice not-very-annular bowls… perhaps not-really-square-shape with maybe not-very-square hudee ring… luscious aqua shade… and first faucet with twin built in soap dispensers are unlike fairly anything we’ve actually noticed before. It appears like there’s a… stick-shift demanded? Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines…
From your Ebay listing:
Quite difficult to find among these everywhere. Sorta reminds as some thing that would be on the Jetson’s.

With all its built in attributes, this sink should have been cutting-edge in 1966. Whether this sink were in my kitchen, I’m not certain I ‘d manage to find out the way to turn on the water and fix the temperature.
