'The Orleans-67' 67" Cast Iron French Bateau Tub with PURE METAL Mirror Polished Copper Exterior plus Drain

Tub Description
Our inspiration for this beautiful French Bateau (Boat) style bathtub emanated from the original design by Rogeat and a few other European makers from around the 1880’s. Our version is wider and deeper and we produce this tub in two different sizes.

The French Bateau tub has a long bathing floor and ample width with exceptional depth to overflow.
This 67” version French Bateau is well sized for larger, taller bathers and also presents the opportunity to be enjoyed by two bathers.


Finishing
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.
