'The BordeauxAgedCopper59' 59" 'PURE-METAL' Aged Copper Exterior CHARIOT Cast Iron Enameled Interior Freestanding Bathtub

The 'BordeauxAgedCopper59' is a fabulous 59" long Chariot 'Pure-Metal' aged copper exterior freestanding bathtub with a bright white enameled interior. To create the 'Pure-Metal' finish, we apply several layers of metal, one upon the other, onto the exterior cast iron surface. We then enhance by hand burnishing and then weathering and aging the entire exterior surface. While still retaining the unique, original casting marks which become very subtle due to the aging process. These marks are the small pin holes, occasional surface bumps and shallow crack lines that form on every cast iron tub as it expands and contracts from bright orange molten metal origins to solid iron. Every extraordinarily beautiful 'Pure-Metal' tub is truly unique.

‘Pure-Metal’ finishes are achieved by applying many thin layers of actual metal to the exterior of the tub. The metal bonds completely to the exterior tub surface and to each other. By applying several very thin metal layers, Penhaglion is able to preserve the unique markings the tub has when it comes out of its’ mold. The results are simply stunning and the mold marks contribute enormously to the individual, original character of each bathtub.

After the aging process is complete, the surface is hand waxed to protect it and make it easy to maintain. Upon request, the copper surface can be left untreated to age quietly in your bathroom. Over the years, even after waxing, there may be some very slow patina changes.
