    IIRC, Weil Brothers started off as a supply house and later bought J.H. McLain, who made boilers and radiators. The resulting Weil-McLain company operated as a supply house for a while after that, offering its own house brand of heating equipment.

    That toilet was probably made in one of the large sanitary pottery plants and stamped with the Weil-McLain name. Crane did the same thing, their toilets were made by Trenton Potteries Co. in Trenton, NJ. Around here we still find toilets with the names of long-gone supply houses like the James Robertson Co., Central Metal and Supply Co. or Southern Supply Co. Most of these were made by Trenton Potteries or the Keystone Pottery Co., which I believe was in or near Philadelphia.

    If you look on the back of that toilet, you may find the actual manufacturer's logo. If it's a star in a circle, that's Trenton. If it's a keystone, that's, well, Keystone.
