If you are looking for high quality, upscale antique bathroom fixtures, the J.L. Mott Iron Works Imperial Porcelain fixtures are what you want. No company in America made finer solid porcelain sinks and bathtubs than the J.L. Mott Mfg Co. The Mott Company sold their bathtubs to the White House in the 1800s and provided the iron for the Capitol Building dome among other buildings in Washington DC. Here is some additional information about J. L. MOTT IRON WORKS: The J.L. Mott Iron Works first made coal burning cooking stoves, and later clawfoot bath tubs, regular bath tubs, porcelain sinks, a wide variety of cast iron items like manhole covers and stable goods, etc... They were located in Mott Haven, in the Bronx in New York. They also had a large factory in Trenton, NJ. - The old J.L. Iron Works building was located in Mott Haven in the Bronx, NY. Jordan L. Mott of Mott Haven: Once dominated by farmland and rural estates, Mott Haven was established in 1828 when Jordan L. Mott purchased a plot of land at the southern most part of Westchester County. The area Mott selected would eventually be strategically located at the confluence of water (Harlem River) and rail (New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad), making it an ideal location for industrial activity. After the New York & Harlem Railroad linked the southeast Bronx to Manhattan in 1840 and Mott built his canal in 1850, Mott Haven began to flourish as an industrial center. Known for its metal works, saw mills, and stone yards, Mott Haven’s industry expanded into the fields of piano factories, lumberyards, furniture manufacturers, and food and ice producers over the course of the nineteenth century. By the early twentieth century, the area had one of the largest concentrations of manufacturing buildings and facilities along the Harlem River
