'The Newstead' 54" Cast Iron Swedish Slipper Clawfoot Tub with a HAND BURNISHED Natural Iron Exterior plus Drain
The Newstead is very elegant small Swedish slipper clawfoot bathtub that is surprisingly roomy for such a small tub. It is enhanced by a hand burnished natural finish exterior. Every cast mark of the tub body is exposed to see before being coated with four layers of clear lacquer to protect and maintain the finish. 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.
