$950.00 or Best Offer Unsold

Seller: rathtj (162) 100%, Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 282264067820 For Sale are two, Matching vintage Gloria toilets and tanks from The John Douglas Company . They were operational. Each was carefully removed during a 2016 renovation on a home in the Schenley Farms Historic District (of Pittsburgh, PA) dating from 1907. Comments:1. Made by The John Douglas Company. A highly visible name within bowl and on lower rear of pedestal. The slang term, "using the John", is believed to have originated with the John Douglas toilets. From what I've read, the Gloria toilets and water closets were made between 1900 and 1920. That fits with the original age of the house.2. Interesting placement of the Gloria name in the porcelain bowl. It must have been a special relationship.3. One toilet is in A condition. Very good color, few blemishes. Minor nicks & a flea bite around bowl. The other matching toilet is likely a B+/A- due to minor areas of discoloration and small nicks, but nothing major. Overall it has very good color as well. There is a small radial spider crack on the right-hand inside of the bowl. But again, these are only visible if you're up close. 4. The tanks were low mounted. I cannot speak to the provenance of the tanks. But they are heavy duty porcelain. The outward facing portion of the tanks looks good and is age appropriate. Minor nicks and age discoloration near rim. There are ancient lime rings and rust spots inside the tanks.5. The tanks do not have lids. 6. The price is for the set. i.e., $950 nets both toilets and both tanks. It's a deal for a rare, matching vintage set in good operational condition.7. Local pick-up only. (No returns.) Color: White, Maker: The John Douglas Company, Material: Porcelain
