The 901 sink from MR Direct is a classic example of superior craftsmanship. It makes an artistic statement in any kitchen by flaunting its hand-hammered texture. Besides being an undermount sink, the 901 has a number of distinctive features. It is constructed from 99% pure mined copper, and its appearance will change over time as oxidation slowly produces a surface coating known as a patina. This effect is usually a major incentive for purchasing a copper sink, therefore MR Direct does not use any lacquers or waxes which could temporarily retard it. Sound-dampening pads on the underside of the sink keep noise to a minimum. Additionally, the 901 has a dual-bowl design, each basin a different size, and one offset from the other. The smaller sink on the right is shallower and shorter than large, deep bowl on the left. With an overall measurement of 33 inch x 22 inch x 9 1/8 inch, it will require a minimum-width cabinet of 33 inch. Two matching, pure copper strainers are included to prevent unwanted waste from falling into the plumbing below.
