"Capital" - Reclaimed & Restored Vintage Cast Iron High Level Toilet Cistern
Fully restored antique "Capital" high level cast iron toilet cistern. This is a very unusually designed cistern with bulbous lid and ribbed bottom. It is larger than a standard cistern weighing 28kg and holds 2.5 gallons of water, although water saving devices can be easily fitted.
Professionally refurbished to a very high standard and in excellent working order. The many layers of paint have been removed and the outer cast iron given a satin black finish and the inner sealed and fully waterproofed.
Please note that any lines and ripples are a characteristic of the original casting and not the restorers' paint finish.
This cistern is fully reversible with the manufacturer's emblem cast on both sides. Beautifully crafted in solid cast iron, all the parts are original and fully serviced, the ballcock has been replaced with a Silent Fill (not shown in photo) which ensures it flushes quietly and effortlessly.
