'The Gigi-TB60' 60" Cast Iron Petite French Bateau Tub with a Tempered 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 Tempered Brass version. This tub has a pure brass coated and polished exterior that is then heated to form the beautiful colors and patterns seen on this wonderful bathtub.; it has a thick cast iron center and a high gloss, high grade enameled interior. The tempered brass is not a living finish and will alter only very slightly over its' lifetime.
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. The heating process alters the colors of the brass.
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.
