Product Overview

The Annabelle faucet by Moen, Moen CA87003SRS 1H SRS kitchen faucet, is an elegant and classic stainless steel faucet with some amazing features. The beautiful Life Shine finish is guaranteed not to tarnish, flake, or corrode even after years of use. It comes with a matching soap or lotion dispenser. The high-arc and flowing curves of the faucet design paired with the soft matte of the brushed metallic stainless steel finish gives the faucet both modern and classic elements perfect for a variety of kitchens.
