Sign of the Crab’s American and Madeira Antique Reproduction Kitchen Faucets: True to the Past yet built for the Future

There is a wide variety of kitchen faucets available today marketed as being vintage or antique, but most are really modern inspirations with an antique theme. Sign of the Crab’s American kitchen faucets and Madeira kitchen faucets are much more faithful to original early to mid twentieth century kitchen faucets. For example, their faucet bodies are designed after antique original faucets. They are also only offered in chrome, polished nickel and matte nickel. That's right, these Sign of the Crab faucets are not available in wildly popular oil rubbed bronze, which is really a modern finish creation. Further, unlike other vintage themed kitchen faucets, Madeira and American kitchen faucets are true to antique originals in that modern sprayers are not available with either of the series.

In other ways, however, Sign of the Crab designed their Madeira and American kitchen faucet series to accommodate the demands of modern consumers. For example, American and Madeira faucets are offered in a wide variety of configurations. Sign of the Crab offers both series in wall mount faucet and deck mount faucet designs. They are also offered with a variety of swiveling spout options including high-arc spouts, swing arm pot filler spouts and extended reach spouts. Sign of the Crab did not ignore advancements in technology when creating their Madeira and American lines as all of these faucets use modern ceramic disk valves which are much more reliable than the old compression valves of the past.

If a vintage kitchen remodel is in your future, consider remaining true to your kitchen’s past by including a Sign of the Crab Madeira or American antique reproduction kitchen faucets
