'The Gigi-PB60' 60" Cast Iron Petite French Bateau Tub with a Polished Brass Exterior and Drain
The Petit Bateau (little boat) tub is a re-designed version of another, much older tub produced in France at the turn of the 19th century. Instead of maintaining the same traditional broad lines, our design team produced a more modern elegant, wider step rounded base and narrower roll top lip. This presents a very elegant variation and softer form of the original tub.
This is our fabulous Polished Brass version. 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.
At only 60’ long, this beautiful little tub offers a well proportioned bathing space. It is very elegantly styled and it offers a good depth to the overflow to cover most of the body. While it remains relatively spacious, this 60” Petit Bateau bathtub is only recommended for one medium sized bather.
