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.
We take the tub as it comes from the mold and treat it to present the appearance of being dipped in pure, thick molten metal. This is not a painted or faux finish, it is actual metal, all the finish markings are natural from the mold. We apply and bond several coats of pure, thick brass before randomly hand brushing to achieve the beautiful living finish, leaving some of the original mold marks on the tub.
A fabulous deep bathtub that will be the absolute centerpiece of any luxurious spa retreat bathroom.
This is our fabulous Living Finish Brass version of our 73" Paris tub. This tub has a pure brass coated and randomly brushed 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.
