    My brother found 1-3/8" "plates" to close off two holes on his cast iron sink. He found it at one of the big box stores. Something like that may work for you.

    You need to retain the overflow and obviously the drain. Any other holes could be sealed. Finding a plate that fit and looked good might be a problem. With today's codes, you cannot have the tub filler spout below the rim, so there'd be no good reason to have holes other than drain and overflow.

    I would assume he means the holes in the wall where the old faucet handles came through the tile.
