Delta Faucet Roman Tub Review: Victorian, Leland, Grail, Other

Updated on January 6, 2015

Delta Roman Tub

Delta roman tub faucets and accessories are as close as it gets to regular lavatory faucets: very similar looking units consisting of a spout and two handles, only installed on the tub. The main difference between the two hardware types lies in the structure, roman tub pieces usually carrying more volume and being taller and spread wider than widespread sink pieces.

The similarity of two categories allows to design a bathroom interior with consistent aesthetic theme. Such collections as Leland offer both modern and traditionally built products, giving customers the option to create a chronological progression, not unlike in a museum. For instance, a bulky c-spout on the sink can than morph into an elegant J-spout on the roman tub – or vice versa.

Roman Tub category includes a wide selection of accessories: towel rings and bars, tissue holders, and handshowers.


  • Victorian collection, among Delta's most popular, comes in a dark bronze or light stainless finish and brings a nostalgic traditionalist atmosphere to the setting. Taking a bath was considered as luxury back in late 19th century, and by installing a Victorian roman tub set you can harness a psychological effect of a rare, and thus particularly enjoyable occasion.

  • Leland collection is more modern than Victorian, but still shows clear signs of retro-inspired plumbing: a fat spout, very kettle-like, and some oriental influences. Leland takes us to the twenties of 20th century, shedding the austerity of the older designs, superseding it with charm. Chrome, bronze, and stainless finishes.

  • Grail presents a stylistic opposite to above mentioned collections. It's completely modern from spout to handle, dispensing with any flourishes and metal embellishments, opting for clean lines and minimalist economy. It's close relative (not only in roman tub hardware, but also in kitchen and lavatory faucets) is the Arzo collection, which employs angular lines and square shapes instead of round cylinders.
