Leland Single Handle Centerset Lavatory Faucet with Riser - Less Pop-Up
Beautiful faucet with my copper vessel sink!
When we got new countertops for our powder room, I was captured by the thought of a copper vessel sink. Faucets for this type of sink, however, must be taller than the typical lavatory faucets, and my sink is quite tall at 6.25 inches. I agonized over the dimensions on the spec sheets provided at the Delta website, and found the style that I liked, and the height that was needed in the Leland faucet with the riser. Because the copper sink has no overflow outlet, I didn't need the pop-up drain mechanism, as I purchased a copper grid drain instead. The oil-rubbed bronze finish contrasts enough with the antique copper of the sink, yet blends nicely with the darker tones around the filigree within the sink.
The only thing that seemed to occur, especially when it was first installed, was that there was one tiny drop of water that dripped into the sink sometime between uses. I know this because it is recommended that the copper sink be wiped of water after each use (and that is the ONLY cleaning that it EVER requires - sweet!). Anyway, that single drip seems to have diminished as it has been used during the past two months since it's been installed, so perhaps it was just something in the valve that is working/has already worked itself out.
I would highly recommend this Delta faucet. When we got the faucet, I liked how heavy the body of it felt, as though it was made of a good-quality metal and I got the impression that it will last a very long time.
