Butlers & Belfast Fireclay Sinks

What is the difference between a Butlers and Belfast Sink? 
Originally these sinks were designed to be installed in the "Butlers " pantry.This was a utility room that was used for the storage and cleaning of serving items rather than food.As serving was usually on silver items some butlers would even sleep in the Pantry to guard the silver.

The nameof these sinks actually relates to where they were made - The sinks made in Belfast were made with an over flow as water usage was not a problem and the tap was left running. The overflow avoided flooding.
In London, however water was more precious and overflows were banned.
 

France started producing similar styles of sinks approximnately 100 years ago and thus became the farmhouse sinks . All butlers should be made from Fireclay, however the french farmhouse sinks may be a littlke slimmer in style.

This style of sink is now popular in Country , French provincial style kitchens and can be mounted under the bench or sitting proud above - depending on your design.
