'The Fontenay-PB-73' 73" Cast Iron Chariot Clawfoot Tub with PURE METAL Polished Brass Exterior and Drain
A simply superb Chariot clawfoot tub finished in Pure-Metal Polished Brass Exterior. Our inspiration to manufacture this gorgeous bathtub came from an original Chariot tub produced by the French company Rogeat in Lyon, France around 1850.
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 brass before hand polishing to a beautiful mirror finish, leaving the original mold marks on the tub.
A fabulous deep bathtub that will be the absolute centerpiece of any luxurious spa retreat bathroom.
This tub has a pure brass 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 brass 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 brass 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.
To maintain the shiny finish, a simple wipe with a soft cloth and some Mothers polish will remove any marks or stains.
