My bowl is actually perfectly plain apart from subtle ribbing, whereas the one –left- has a raised design

I have an original Art Deco black bevelled glass splashback with mirror and chrome fittings very like this one to fit behind itblack art deco splashback

The two work together really well considering the ninety-odd year age gap as simple clean lines and crisp styling like this never go of of fashion.

    Lovely! I’m a fan of the bath in the bedroom too and have struggled to get my husband to understand it let alone a French builder!

    Yeah, modern. My English workers love old stuff. The French guys want space-age new. With those simple shapes and similar color organization, those things will look great together. Even the workers will think so.
