Crain Toilet Saddle Seat

My home has a Crane Criterion Toilet (1955) with a saddle seat, or correct posture seat. It's curved downward in the center.

Seat broke.

Now what to do?

I've looked everywhere. The Crane people were nice but they have no solutions for me

Further, from what I understand, the holes for the seat are a non standard size, eliminating the option of replacing with a new one.

Any ideas on how to move forward? New toilet?

The seat is a solid oval, not open in the front. Bolts holes are approx 9" wide. Elongated seat is 18" long and 14" wide.

You will have to call the vintage places to find one... Im sure you will pay a pretty penny...


Here is one, but there are a few..

Vintage Plumbing Bathroom Antiques - Art Deco Fixtures

Although I like vintage I probably would replace the toilet...Just my opinion though...
