American Standard? Oh, I don't think so. In my many years of paging through plumbing supply catalogs I never once saw anything that came close to this model -- one of several interesting toilets we encountered during our Thailand travels. Resembling a Japanese "croucher-upper", this type sits on an above grade plinth requiring a slightly awkward maneuver to properly position one's feet on either side of the basin. The flush mechanism is strictly do-it-yourself and a tub of water (here more of a trough) with a handled bucket are provided for this express purpose. Toilet paper? Available on a BYO basis only.
