Faucet Set Manufacturer?

CLambCLamb Member Posts: 65
Does anyone know the manufacturer of this faucet set? It is circa 1950. I have posted closeups of what I think is the TM.

    It looks a little like a tree.

    Maybe move the strings.
    Put some water on the logo. In the first pic you can see more definition on the wet parts of the faucet. Then take some pics and post.

    It is a "spread eagle" with head turned to the right.

    Looks like a laundry tub faucet made by Gerber as @george_42 says above. Might be a model 49-5***???

    @CLamb . Try a google search. That faucet is probably a "easy" direct replacement.

    handles look like the gerber in my mom's basement from the 50's

    probably can still easily get the stems and seats to rebuild it if it is more than washers and packing

    It does look like the Gerber sets I've seen online except that they have the stems on the side whereas mine has them in front.

    Here are some more photos of the logo.

    Front or side shouldn't really matter. Unless you are particular.
    That faucet is one of the few that has what I believe is a six inch center set. It should install directly in the same place, with little to no modifications.

    I don't think they make those exact handles anymore because it seems to be some sort of lead alloy but those handles are identical to a gerber my mom has but there are chromed handles that fit which are still available. The splines in the handle and handle design are usually specific to a manufacturer so the handles identify it.

    Repairs may not be an option on this faucet. They probably wont take.
    I would recommend replacing it .
