Sink faucets mount is 45 deg

Postby Riverside Baker on Mon Feb 05, 2018 3:16 pm

Hello all,

Our 1908 house has a remodeled kitchen, maybe from the 1940s or 50s. The faucet has reached the end of its lifetime, but the sink has plenty of life. However, the faucet mount in not horizontal like modern faucets, nor vertical. It's at a 45 degree angle as shown:

(We have a filtered-water spout mounted where the spray hose used to be).

I've struck out finding anything that mounts this way, on line or at local dealers. Does anyone know who might make new faucets for this?
