Shaws 40 Inch Original Rutherford Double Bowl Fireclay Farmhouse Kitchen Sink by Rohl
A stunning farmhouse sink is truly the heart of a rustic kitchen, both in style and features. This 40” double bowl sink from Rohl has history on its side. If you’re looking for a traditional sink, this opulent choice was originally introduced by Shaws of Darwen in 1897. Named for the House of Lancaster, a branch of the British Royal Family, this premium sink was designed for the grand country houses and sculleries of 19th century England, making them the true original when it comes to farmhouse sinks.
Today, the same time-honored techniques and factory are used to lovingly make each apron front sink over the course of a month. These sinks are hand poured, shaped, and finished by expert craftsmen in Lancashire, England. In fact, each sink is stamped with the name of its maker, for a truly custom piece in your kitchen.
The material of this sink is just as important as its classic aesthetic. These sinks are made from regionally sourced genuine heavy ball fireclay, which is fused with a glaze at an extremely high temperature to create a sink that is virtually indestructible. Not only that, these fireclay sinks have antibacterial properties, and resist damage from bleach, acid, and alkali materials. They’re also scratch-resistant and won’t break on impact if you drop a pot or pan.
Rohl apron front farmhouse sinks not only look beautiful and last forever, they’re functional too. The apron front makes it easy to get closer to your dishes when scrubbing up. Plus the deep bowl makes them ideal for soaking baking or roasting pans, or large pasta pots. A double bowl offers even more benefits as you can wash up in one basin and rinse in the other.
From a design standpoint, this elegant oversized apron front sink comes in two color choices. Pick from a classic crisp white or a rustic ivory tone to coordinate with other appliances and fixtures for the perfect centerpiece to your classic kitchen design
