'The Bordeaux-PN59' 59" 'PURE-METAL' Polished Nickel Exterior CHARIOT Cast Iron Freestanding Bathtub

The 'Bordeaux-PN59' is a fabulous 59" long Chariot 'Pure-Metal' polished nickel exterior freestanding bathtub with a bright white enameled interior. To create the 'Pure-Metal' finish, we apply several layers of molten nickel, one upon the other, onto the exterior cast iron surface. We then enhance by hand burnishing and polishing to present a stunning, deep lustrous mirror like finish while still retaining the unique, original casting marks. 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 red-hot molten metal origins to solid iron during the molding process. 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 finishing, we protect it with an application of four coats of natural beeswax. The exterior does not rust, but will darken and deepen very slightly as it ages. If you prefer to maintain the highly polished finish forever, simply use some Mothers polish and apply and remove gently with a fiber cloth.
