Restored Wooden "The Japkap" High Level Toilet Cistern
A high level antique wooden toilet cistern circa 1900s manufactured by Japkap. This is probably one of the first dual flush toilet cisterns, pull and let go for a half flush, or pull and hold for a full flush.
It has a beautifully crafted quality wooden box with dovetail joints. All the internal parts are stamped with the manufacturer's name and Rd numbers. There is an unusual copper pipe fitment on the top of the syphon which just peeps out above the box and makes an interesting feature.
Only one side beares the Japkap writing, but the syphon is reversible if your setup requires.
Professionally refurbished inside and out to a very high standard and in excellent working order. The wood has been given a satin wax finish and the inside mechanism provides efficient, quiet flushing and filling.
