Well, I finally gave up trying to find another sink like this after searching the country. The entire bottom of the sink was covered in spiderweb cracks so I just cut the bowl out from the edge of the rim down and droped a stainless steel bar sink right in its place. It was 5 1/2" deep so the existing faucet and plumbing matched up perfectly. Took about 1 hour and looks great. Hope this helps someone else looking for a simply and inexpensive solution.

I was going to suggest checking with this person, but I see you solved your own problem... The bar sink is a great idea!

Argosy Bathroom Sink Replacement

As you can see I have a top mount SS bar sink thats 15X15 and 5 1/2" deep. I think this sink came from Home Depot. I cut out the bowl with my jigsaw after taping it off around the top of the rim. The pre-drilled faucet holes on the stainless steel sink were about an inch or two further back than the original faucet holes on the argosy sink. That was perfect, it allowed me to drill two new faucet holes in the sink top and drop the original faucet back in. All the plumbing lined up perfectly and I just screwed it back together. The SS sink dropped in nice and snug. I used clear silicone underneath to seal it and put a bunch of bricks in the sink to weight it down for 24 hours and I got a nice clean seal. The SS sink had 5 attached screw post on the bottom so I just cut those off flush to the sink because I didn't want to drill anymore holes in the plastic top. Its nice and sturdy and works great. Best of all it matches our kitchen sink and my wife loves it when things match.
