I found this cool nickel plated beauty on today's job. A circa 1913 foursquare being renovated had this neat little detail. The guy renovating the home said it was so encrusted in paint that he didn't realize it had writing on it until he soaked it in lacquer thinner.

I found it to be a clever marketing detail...unless the toilet backs up and they want to know who to blame!

This sort of thing may be common elsewhere, but it is unusual around here.

In rural America, if the Lewndowski family is still in the plumbing business they remember when Grandad stopped handing those out. They've also worked on that house often enough to remember where each of the clean outs are, even the one buried in the yard.
