Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catsma Great replacement for slant back sink
I was afraid I would have to redo the counter and sink in my bathroom, since the sink is tiled in. I've grown fond of this slant back sink from the '60's. I looked online and found that this was about the only possible faucet replacement. When I saw that HomeDepot.com sold this at a price competitive to any other online plumbing company I was very pleased. Returns would be easier with Home Depot. The plumber put it in without any problem other than a little difficulty getting the old one off. I preferred the look of the old faucet, but this one is OK. It seems to be well built and my only complaint is the change in style. The cost was a little high - but I can understand that since it's a specialty item and it has a lot of brass in it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoeBlake Functional Replacement
This item replaced a 1956 Briggs slant back lavatory faucet. I would have rated it 5 stars, but the instructions do not meet my extremely high standards. Additionally, the handles could be less institutional in appearance, especially in regards to showing the center bolt.
However, the faucet is easily adjustable in regards to width. Adjust the width prior to installation and tighten down o-ring fittings for sealing.
The old faucet, and the new, are actually installed from the top, so installation is much simpler than would be anticipated.
The old faucet was "hard plumbed" in. I cut out this plumbing and replaced with cold and hot water valves as well as stainless steel mesh water lines.
The stopper mechanism works very well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bess Finally fast running hot water again.
The price of this product for an old bathroom sink was very reasonable and it is so nice to have properly working faucets again. I had almost given up finding one I could afford and then your employee Phil Brown in Richfield, Utah helped me find this one. I am so happy to have proper running hot water again without a major bathroom remodel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stefano Not exactly as in the diagram
I was a little surprised that there is a 45 degree bend where you attache the water pipe (in the direction of the wall in my case), it was not in the old faucet I was replacing and not in any diagram from Central brass. I was able to install it but I wish they did not put those bends.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cvstan Central Brass slant-Back Faucet
There are only two slant-back faucets available and this is one of them. Tried to install this on a 1954 Case slant-back bathroom sink. Faucet does not cover up center hole in sink. Escutcheons not large enough. Need to cut center T to make it fit on a 4-in hole spacing. I decided not to install this faucet. I will return this product. If it fits on your sink, OK, but did not work for me.
Expensive. No quarter-turn cartridge version available.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by aemrick There's only one of these on the market
And this is it. If you have a slant back sink, this is your only choice for a faucet. It works well. It's not impossible to install. The pop-up valve is a little tricky, but doable. The price tag is harsh considering the faucet isn't all that fancy, but with limited choices, this is it. So far as I can tell, Home Depot is the only major supplier that carries slant back sink faucets.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by joetheapprentice does not fit Crane slant back sink
This product does not fit the Crane Slant back sink. The sink drain rod hole on the faucet does not align with the hole in the sink. Second in order to make it fit a 4 inch center line sink you must cut the brass pipe 1/4 inch on each end. This is not easy to do to get a smooth edge. Given that I could not align the drain rod withe existing holes in the sink., i had to return the part and buy a new sink.
