'The Paris-Copper73' 73" Cast Iron French Bateau Tub with PURE METAL Polished Copper Exterior and Drain
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.
Unlike many French Bateau style tubs on the market today, ours is produced to offer ample space for two bathers and exceptional depth for deep soaking. This applies to both our 67” and 73” versions.
The French Bateau tub has a long bathing floor and ample width with exceptional depth to overflow. Definitely suitable for two bathers.
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.
