Makes A Statement. Love it....But, because of the gold finishes on drawers and facuet, I'm having a hard time completing the rest of the room with the same finish. The marble top is not a solid black, it has a tiny gray speck in it. Also, divided on the Contemporary style catagory it is put into. Can be either Contemporary or Traditional.
Good looking, but... For starters,let me say that this is a really good looking, solid vanity. It was incredibly packed & arrived in perfect condition. The marble top & porcelain sink are well done as is the base. The base is not wood, more likely a molded fiberboard. We were aware of this going in, but if you're looking for wood, this isn't the one for you.It looks good in our powder room. It does require quite a bit of modifications though. The opening in the back is exactly 8"& if your pipes are not within that space, the back opening needs to be enlarged. There is a top piece directly under the sink that needs to have holes drilled into it to run the supply lines. And your basebords will require modifcation for a flush fit.
A.A. Importing Company, Inc. was founded in 1934 by A.A. Gralnick in the Gas Light Square area in St. Louis, MO. It began as a distributor for kerosene lamp parts and accessories. Prior to and after World War II, A.A. Importing was heavily involved in the importation of fine crystal and art glass, as well as fine porcelain from Europe. The company became famous for its fine selection of art glass and accessories for the antique trader as well as replacement parts. That was the beginning of building a strong foundation for A.A. Importing in the antique reproduction business.
By the mid seventies, with a broad basis of porcelain, glassware, iron, brass and ceramics, A.A. Importing was the leading company in the world in the field of antique reproductions. Starting in 1974 the company took its extensive knowledge of antique and popular styles and adapted it to the manufacturing of small furniture items. The items that were first brought to the market included Bentwood hat racks, corner 'what-nots', marble top plant stands and round oak tables these were just some of the first's that A.A. Importing had produced.
As the nation developed an even greater interest in decorating with an antique theme, A.A. Importing was again at the forefront. Today their sources of antique reproductions have expanded world wide.
A.A. Importing services a wide spectrum of diverse customers. The mediums of products they work in include wood, iron, porcelain, bronze, crystal as well as glassware and stained glass items.
