Does anyone recognize the brand of the faucet in the image below, so that I can attempt to disassemble and inspect parts? Secondly, the right-hand handle sticks; is hard to turn off completely, and leaves water leaking from the spout. Any advice on how to fix this problem?

  • there may be labels attached to the pipes underneath ... you have said what type of valves you have (compression or washerless) (washreless would be 1/4 or 1/2 turn with hard stops) – jsotola Feb 7 '18 at 16:38
  • Tommie, you can discontinue the practice of adding the comment notice at the top of your questions. That goes without saying on SE networks. :) – isherwood Feb 7 '18 at 21:40

It looks much like this one--wow ... not cheap--found by doing a web image search for "antique brass faucet".

This is the install document. Item 16 is a setscrew that you loosen so that you can remove the handle, and expose the cartridge assembly. Then I guess that you would loosen a retaining ring and pull up on the cartridge assembly.

Do not forget to shut off the water before doing this.

Here is the manufacturer. You could email them.

Here is a search for info.

  • Could you offer any advice on part two of the question (how to disassemble, inspect, and clean these faucets)? - I'm a novice in this area but I'm handy and learn quick. – Tommie C. Feb 7 '18 at 19:56
  • This answer addresses the critical points of disassembly. Cleaning of a faucet mostly involves dissolving calcium buildup. However, cartridge-type faucets generally don't need much cleaning if the cartridges are being replaced. There's plenty to be found on that with a search. – isherwood Feb 7 '18 at 21:45
