Finding Legs and a Spigot for a Vintage Sink

We bought a beautiful blue wall mount bathroom sink at a salvage store. It appears to be vintage 1940's. The spigot and hot/cold controls are there, but we don't know if they work. The problem is twofold: Where can we find the chrome support legs it needs? I've looked all over the internet. And also, the original spigot only sticks out about 1 1/2 inches, not very useable. The faucet mounts on the VERTICAL back of the sink, again not able to find anything online. This seems to be a rare design.

You could try a company called Van Dyke's Restorers, the number on my catalog is 1-800-558-1234.

How about if you just use replicas or copies of vintage faucets? I have some installed in a sink and they look fine, work great and the wonderful thing is that parts are still being made should they be needed.

As far as the legs go, suggest you find an old sideboard, plop the sink in the middle of it and build a frame around it.
