I'm going to get a better pic today. But this toilet is from 1991, bone in color and elongated. The elongated toilet seat replacements at Home Depot are an inch or two too short.

We just purchased this home and are trying to find the manufacturer. So far, we are unable to locate any identifying marks.

Ok, we just found a number inside the tank, 1957 12 7 89. I'm trying to look it up now.

Thank you, Susan

    This can be absolutely anything. American Standard? You may be better off replacing the whole toilet and buying a few extra seats. – ajeh Jul 27 '17 at 16:16
  • Look at the top of the bowl, between/behind the bolt-holes for the seat - that's the most common location for a brand-name IME. Sometimes there will be something stamped into the inside of the tank, too. – Ecnerwal Jul 27 '17 at 16:24

    Go buy some Kohler toilets and just replace them. The new ones take so little water to flush they'll pay for themselves in time – Machavity Jul 27 '17 at 16:59
  • Did you look under the tank lid? – BrianK Jul 27 '17 at 17:39

Without gettng anything useful directly from the number, my search on the number lead me to a "toilet identification page" where the peculiar shape of the tank provided the tentative ID (Eljer Preserver) in my comment.
