'The Colmar' 66" Cast Iron Plinth Bateau Tub with PURE METAL Polished Copper Exterior plus Drain

Tub Description
The Colmar is a fabulous 66” Plinth Bateau that is a newly designed tub with the most minimal appearance of all of our tubs. It encompasses a delightful bateau shaped wider roll top lip and a very simple outward facing attached straight plinth base.
This is our fabulous Polished Copper version. This tub has a pure copper coated and polished exterior; it has a thick cast iron center and a high gloss, high grade enameled interior. While we apply a protective clear beeswax to the tub exterior before shipping, the copper will naturally tarnish over time. Further applications of beeswax will slow any patina and to remove any unwanted patina, a soft cloth and some polish will work perfectly.
The copper is applied to the tub exterior as it exits the mold portraying natural, interesting and unique mold markings which truly enhance the beauty of the tub.
At 66” long, this beautiful bathtub offers a well sized bathing space. The interior size and excellent depth to overflow make the 66” Plinth Bateau bathtub suitable for a good sized single bather or perhaps two smaller bathers.

Polished Copper Finish
We use pure copper for the exteriors on the Copper Collection.
The cast iron tub is left in its original form as it exits the mold and cleaned of any excess iron scale. We then finish the inside of the tub with thick, bright white enamel before completing the exterior. Onto the raw iron exterior, we apply twelve layers of molten copper. Since the copper is applied in a liquid molten form, this allows it to enter all of the cracks, crevices and small cavities that occur naturally during the casting process. This gives each tub its own unique beauty.
The copper has a natural shiny pinkish gold reflective living finish that will tarnish and develop a noticeable patina over the years. If you enjoy watching the tub age as it moves through life in your home, do nothing to the surface when it becomes marked. These marks will alter and change in color over time. The exterior will develop its own very special and unique patina, produced by the natural environment in the home.
If you prefer that the copper remains shiny and bright, simply wipe away any stains or marks with a soft cloth and some Mothers polish.
