    Call for a plumber to repair.

    I'm curious what that sink looks like -- i like the way they routed the drain-stopper arm! Is that some kind of radiator hose connected to the overflow?

    Nope.

    Yep.

    Or maybe even an unvented trap because the vent is lower than the trap weir and it is supposed to be above it - meaning it is not going to allow much air to vent up to the fixture ... more like gulping for air is what it would do.

    If i remember it was a vessel sink and they had a really cool overflow drain line set up. It was a custom sink.

    If the definition of "custom" is jury-rigged, well.....

    The plumber who put that drain in the wall has some explaining to do; it's nearly on the cabinet floor and the drainstop mechanism looks "custom" too.

    Yeah it was custom alright. The vanity probably cost a few grand and I bet he didn't want to cut it.
