The Petit Bateau (little boat) tub is a re-designed version of another, much older tub produced in France at the turn of the 19th century. Instead of maintaining the same traditional broad lines, our design team produced a more modern elegant, wider step rounded base and narrower roll top lip. This presents a very elegant variation and softer form of the original tub with very good depth to the overflow.
At only 60’ long, this beautiful little tub offers a well proportioned bathing space. It is very elegantly styled and it offers a good depth to the overflow to cover most of the body. While it remains relatively spacious, this 60” Petit Bateau bathtub is only recommended for one medium sized bather.
Product Finish - Aged Chrome
This is our beautiful 60” Petit Bateau finished in our exclusive Aged Chrome. Aged Chrome offers a slightly worn metal look that adapts perfectly for both vintage and contemporary settings. After preparing the tub exterior surface to accept a specially formulated chrome finish that contains real metal particles we apply four coats of high grade clear lacquer are applied to protect the surface. The result is stunning.
The Aged Chrome exterior is very simple to clean, just a damp soft cloth will remove any marks. The interior of the tub is finished with hand applied high grade enamel. As a result, slight undulations will appear on the surface and this will add to the individual character of every Penhaglion hand finished bathtub.
