" Years ago, when one wanted to install a bathroom deluxe, it was considered to be the thing to have the lavatory and WC basin, etc. decorated either with blue and gold bands or with ﬂowered designs, often hand-painted in various colours. Sometimes the ware itself was formed with a decorative pattern in relief. Today the demand is for all white pottery sanitary ﬁxtures, any feeling of coldness in the bathroom being avoided by having the walls either tiled or otherwise tinted in warm colours.
" This demand for all-white bathroom suites is rapidly spreading to include the accessories and ﬁttings as well as the ﬁxtures, the underlying motive being bathrooms that can kept spotlessly clean with an absolute minimum of labour.
" Accessories such as mirror frames, shelves, towel rails, sponge holders and the like, can already be obtained in white pottery, but it is obvious that ﬁttings such as taps and other working parts cannot be satisfactorily made wholly of pottery. Fittings of this kind are obtainable in brass with a white ﬁnish. By the use of these pottery-clad ﬁttings the entire lavatory - or other ﬁxture - can be kept perfectly clean merely wiping the whole outﬁt over with a damp cloth or sponge. "
