Mercury Fittings: A Century of Classics with Lefroy Brooks
Lefroy Brooks is the manufacturer of classic British bathroom and kitchen brassware with taps that date from the 1900’s through to the 2000’s. Their 100% brass hand-assembled quality taps offer a century of classics, now available locally through Mercury Fittings.
Lefroy Brooks products are made from 100% solid brass. They have been individually hand polished, assembled and plated in a special finish. Christo Lefroy Brooks has taken on the task of researching a century of taps and selecting the great classics from each decade.
From the Lefroy Brooks archives, the company have produced a historically referenced range of essentials for the bathroom. Their story spans the last century from the tap’s domestic origins in the late Victorian era through to the beginning of a new millennium.
The story begins in 1900 with the Edwardian turn of the century British range. The curvaceous French range follows. The 1930s range encompasses the Art Deco period while the glamorous 1940s range includes panels of hand applied black lacquer. In the 1950s we see a west coast streamlined style, evocative of the great American automobiles. The definitive minimalist range, machined from solid stainless steel completes the century.
The latest range is the 1935 Janey Mac collection of taps – offering a beautiful timeless offering to enhance any bathroom. All taps are hand cast, hand forged, hand polished and hand assembled.
These classic products still stand the test of time. They were beautifully made, beautifully practical and they remain beautiful today.
