I'd go with a vintage Crapper; that is, an original Thomas Crapper WC:



If you go with a repro, make sure it is period correct. Personally, I prefer the patina of one of the early Crappers.

And, Mr. Crapper himself:



FWIW, Mr. Crapper did not invent the flush toilet and the word "crap" existed well before Mr. Crapper was born. For some history of the flush toilet, look no further:

Best,

Kurt

Toto- the Lexus of crappers.

I've replaced every toilet in my house with them.

They'll gulp down elephant turds and suck the rhino clean.

100% reliable for years on end.

Wide range of colors and styles.

Prices normally range between $400 and $500. Some of the more expensive go to $800 or more.

Toto +1.

I replaced an A.S. that would need plunging every two weeks. Over a year now, and I haven't plunged the toto yet.
