Oh the joy of a properly flushing toilet! Over 40yo toilets just don't - brand new toilets DO! It was rather sad to see the lavender one leave the house tho - yes the original fixtures in the main bathroom are lavender. I actually like my lavender bathroom, it was a pretty rare color choice back in 1964. Pink and mint green were much more common. The useful life of the lavender bathroom is pretty much over and soon we'll need to gut the room and start over, but until demolition starts, we have working toilets.
