In 1897, the apron sink was introduced by Shaws of Darwen, England. Today, every Rohl "Shaws Original" fireclay sink is still hand poured and shaped and stamped with the name of the artisan who created it. Each product is a meticulously designed work of art, source of pride and centerpiece. The ROHL collection of fireclay sinks offers the utmost in quality and design, ranging from centuries-old English character to the highly coveted clay of the Limoges region in France. All represent our commitment to the experience of authentic luxury, the hallmark of the ROHL name. Our authentic apron sinks resist acid, alkali, scratches and impact, making them as versatile and durable today as they were a century ago.
