'The Colchester' 68" Cast Iron French Bateau Tub with a Hand Burnished Natural Iron Exterior plus Drain

Product Details
This beautifully presented hand burnished natural finish french bateau cast iron tub offers an insight into the production of a classic french bateau tub. The exterior of the tub shows all the production marks including the graphite lines formed during the 'chill' process of molding. Occasionally you will see hues of deep, dark reddish-browns from the natural iron. Thin narrow lines up to one millimeter deep crisscross the tub surface which itself is between seven to 9 millimeter thick.


After the burnishing process is complete, the surface is given four coats of high grade clear lacquer to seal the metal and prevent any oxidation from occurring. The surface is very simple to maintain and clean, just a simple wipe with a dry cloth. The interior of the tub is hand applied 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.
