Calla II 23 5/8" Widespread Pedestal Vitreous China Bathroom Sink with 8" Centers and Overflow
Poor craftsmanship, stay away
I ordered this sink because I thought it would look very elegant in our new powder room. When it arrived, it was well packaged and it took me about two months to finally get to install it.
This sink has three major flaws: 1) The pedestal is very uneven, resulting in you needing to spend a lot of time leveling the sink by putting those tiny rubber bumbers on the pedestal top and resetting the sink and re-measuring levels. This took me over an hour and a half and I must have repositioned the sink over 20 times until it finally leveled.
3) The hardware that comes with it for bolting it to the wall was ridiculously large. Nobody would possibly drill such large holes in their walls and install 1/2" diameter bolts in the studs. I ended up throwing it away and going to the harware store and getting new drywall toggle bolts.
3) Now, for the worse part of it, after I finished installing it, i tested the overflow and it failed to drain water. The way they positioned the four small overflow holes downwards at an angel, it prevents air from escaping so no water could possibly drain through them. This is clearly an engineering flaw of the product and if you have kids and your overflow is your only insurance against watery mishaps, then look for another sink.
