Thomas Crapper Toilets

High-Level Toilets

High-level toilets are versatile, offering a range of colours. These toilets enhance large bathroom spaces but can become a focal point in a cloakroom bathroom. Options include the 814-cast cistern, ceramic cistern, or polished metal cistern. These high-level loos display the classic Thomas Crapper branding and the option to have personalised engravings (excluding ceramic cisterns).

814 Cast Cistern: In 1900, the company produced the iconic valveless waste preventer which was catalogue number 814. You’ll find this number engraved on their range of cast and polished metal cisterns

Available in White, Matt Black, British Racing Green, ‘Crapper’ Red, and Unfinished (primed for painting)

Low-Level Toilets

Thomas Crapper low-level toilets offer the same colour options as the 814, polished metal, and ceramic cistern. They also offer the Comtesse low-level, a smooth and curved ceramic cistern and pan that contrasts against their standard ceramic toilet. This makes it perfect for both traditional and modern bathrooms.


Close Coupled & Back-To-Wall Toilets

Thomas Crapper offer a range of close coupled and back-to-wall toilets. The Viceroy is ideal if you want the original Thomas Crapper branding on your cistern, displaying luxury and quality throughout your bathroom interior.

Both the close-coupled and low-level toilets are available with the unique beer-pull handle. A handmade cistern lever available in chrome, nickel
