 Thomas Crapper and Co were very well-known for the quality of their products and received several Royal Warrants. It is a name that exudes quality to this day.

There are quite a few Victorian company’s that helped establish and promote high standards and quality of  British workmanship. Within the fine sanitary wear business John Bolding and certainly Thomas Crapper and Co would be counted amongst these. If you are lucky enough to have some Thomas Crapper taps it is well worth restoring them.

Here are some stunning original Thomas Crapper taps. As you can see they were in a terrible state. One of the handleswas completely missing and they were unusuable. 

To recondition and re plate these taps first of all the taps would be taken apart and inspected thoroughly. If any parts were found to be missing or faulty these would be replaced. Then the taps would be put back together again and tested to ensure they worked correctly. After this the taps would need to be taken apart again to be plated. In this instance a lovely silver nickel plate was applied. Again the taps would be put together again and tested before finally being packaged a returned to their owner. Arguably more work goes into reconditioning and re plating the taps than the original construction.

The specialist tap technician has done a fantastic job of restoring the taps so they look absolutey stunning.
