I am in the process of trying to figure out what it is worth. I don't care to get "top dollar" for it and hope someone who would appreciate it could get a good deal on it too.
I took another look inside the tank and it just has "Standard" stamped there. I suspect maybe that might mean "Standard Sanitary Mfg Co." which was formed in 1899 but didn't become "American Standard" until 1929.
I e-mailed David Worthington who owns Magnolia Springs Bed and Breakfast and has the only other elephant trunk toilet I know of. He said "it works better than any new toilet on the market today and is very rare here in America." His ET toilet is pictured on the link supplied to me by Dismuke:
I have the toilet, flush tube, and tank. There are at least a couple of places you can get the inside works, installation diagrams and anything else you might need. A good one is Bathroom Machineries at: http://www.deabath.com/index.html
I don't want to do E-bay. Can't imagion shipping this thing. It weighs a ton!
At any rate, it has been fascinating researching vintage plumbing fixtures and the preservation of historic buildings!
