Shaws 36 Inch Original Lancaster Single Bowl Apron Front Fireclay Kitchen Sink by Rohl
In 1897 the fireclay apron front farmhouse sink was introduced by Shaws of Darwen. Made in Lancashire, England—in the same factory—Shaws sinks are hand poured, shaped and stamped with the name of its maker. Made of local heavy ball fireclay, each sink takes about a month to craft.
Originally designed in 1897, the Shaws Lancaster form was created for the grand country houses and sculleries of 19th century England.
The Shaws Original Lancaster Kitchen sink is the original farmhouse, apron front sink. Named for the House of Lancaster, a branch of the British Royal Family, this style has set the standard for all farmhouse, apron front sinks.
Crafted in Great Britain, using regionally sourced heavy ball fireclay, by craftsmen using time-honored hand molding and finishing techniques.
