Thorpe says he appreciates the proportions, finishes, and technical excellence of Jado's Colonial 850 cross-handle faucet. Made from cast brass, the faucet uses ceramic disc valves and has three handle options. Finishes include antique nickel, old bronze, and polished chrome. Jado Corp., 800.227.2734; www.jadousa.com.
