Chesterfield Double Handle Widespread Lavatory Faucet with Metal Cross Handles (Low Lead Compliant)
I recently purchased this faucet to go along with a white cottage style bathroom vanity with a white marble top. I wanted something that appears vintage but still classic and streamlined. I debated about a gooseneck faucet, but I think this looks cleaner and visually takes up less space.
I couldn't make a decision on finishes, and a customer service rep was extremely helpful in helping me to narrow it down. I ended up going with the brushed nickel finish. It is slightly brighter and lighter than my other brushed nickel accesories from Pottery Barn but still looks great.

Nice faucet, but could be better
I purchased this faucet in the weathered copper finish for a guest bathroom redo. The faucet is nice, but has several annoying flaws.
1. The valve body is made in germany and is flawless. The drain assembly is made in Mexico and is flawless. It is the American part that I have a problem with.
2. The spout is misaligned on the spout shank by about 10 degrees. The spout also has a 1cm dent in the metal that was obviously there when the finish was applied. These flaws will not be noticeable where I am installing the faucet, so I'm not going to worry about.
3. The bottom of the hexagonal valve-body bonnet has several nicks resulting in the surface not being smooth. When this hexagonal part is screwed down on the round valve-body escutcheon, it could scratch the surface and be noticeable. This was remedied by gently rubbing the bonnet base across fine emory cloth and applying a thin film of oil to the top escutcheon surface before assembly. No big deal, but it could have been.
In summary, this is a nice faucet. It is not "flawless beauty from faucet to finish", like the ads say. At nearly $600, I do not think it is worth twice the price of Kohler.
