GLENDA ONLY
1900's French bidetHi Glenda
I've scrolled through several hundred photo's but can't find a bidet with 5 taps. Mostly 2 or 3. The tap heads are porcelain and marked PORCHER, then whether it's CHAUD (hot), FROID (cold), etc, PARIS. I know it's 1900 as my French antique friend rescued it from a house that was built in 1900 and everything in there was brand new at time of building. When I get up in the van I'll check what the other taps say but can you give me an idea of value, please? I'm also going to check if there's a makers name on it.
Thanks a bunch

Looks like Porcher is the name, they seem to have been a Plumbing Company that produced sinks, bidets etc.

These reclaimed Bidets are selling for £250 -300
