No, but judging by the handles it takes 1/2" semi generic ceramic cartridges like the Grohe 45882000.

https://www.plumbersstock.com/grohe-...urn-right.html

These cartridges are a very standard pattern as I am sure you will have noticed if you do plumbing service. The splines are standard, but the escutcheon thread has a gap between it and the bonnet rim. Kohler makes one of this style cartridge with no bonnet threads which your local supply house is most likely to have. Those handles appear to have caps so you may be able to use the kohler variant with a center screw to hold the handle on.

If you want I can post a pic of the most common versions that I stock in my van.

The short answer is take the handles off and take a pic so I can find you the exact cartridge. The handles have a set screw or two. There may be a center screw under those caps which may unscrew or pop off. Also the bonnet may need to be unscrewed.

Is that a leak on the middle lower swing joint?

You tried.... Went online, made some calls, nothing positive enough to waste time trying various cartridges. Time to replace.

The faucet belongs to a friend of mine. He sent me the picture. I have not been there yet to have a better look. He told me that he did not see any names on it. Valve at wall still shuts off. Valve at spout end does not. The hinge in the center looks like its going bad by the picture.

as said before..tell him to buy a NEW one and you can install it, and call it a day....many times you spend more time running for parts and trying to get an old faucet apart, and no guarantee new parts will fix the issue...

I came acorss an Altmans brand faucet a couple weeks ago. It was/is a high end chunky fixture like Santec. I had the hardest time matching up the stems for it. couldnt replace it as it was in the master bath and matched all the other fixtures.

Better yet, just pull it out and cap it off. I like to cook, but I have never in my life wished that I had one. The sink has never been too far away that I thought, "man cooking this lobster or pasta would make my life SO much easier, if only I had a pot filler instead of having to carry the water from the sink 4 feet away." Besides, if you have it and use it often, you still need to carry the water back to the sink, so it actually makes more work for you.

Far be it from me to begrudge anyone what they do with their own money, but IMO they are the epitome of what one does when he doesn't know what else to spend his money on. I don't give a crap with keeping up with the Joneses, nor with trying to impress anyone because I have the latest fad in home design. Now I did install a hot water hose bib next to my cold one. That is much more useful than any pot filler, but my wife's friends don't drool over it because they haven't seen it on HGTV.
