'The Bridlington-PN-73' 73" Cast Iron French Bateau Clawfoot Tub with PURE-METAL Polished Nickel Exterior and Drain
A beautiful French Bateau clawfoot bathtub is one of the roomiest
tubs we make. Great for either one or two bathers, just lots of room to
soak. While it is a large tub, it retains a huge amount of elegance
simply from its unique sensual shape. We take the tub as it comes from the mold and treat it to present the appearance of being dipped in pure, thick molten metal. This is not a painted or faux finish, it is actual metal, all the finish markings are natural from the mold. We apply and bond several coats of pure, thick nickel before hand polishing to a beautiful mirror finish, leaving the original mold marks on the tub.
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.
