'The Paris-LFZC-73' 73" Cast Iron French Bateau Tub with Burnished Zinc 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.
This 73” version French Bateau is perfectly sized for larger, taller bathers and offers exceptional space for two bathers.
This is a truly stunning deep bathtub with a Living Finish zinc exterior that is guaranteed to be the centerpiece of any fabulous spa retreat bathroom.
Adapting specialized metal bonding technology, Penhaglion prepares and coats the tub exterior surfaces in the material of choice before presenting it in a light random brushed finish, ready to patinate. What form the patina takes depends solely on the environment inside the room, but whatever occurs, it is certain to be beautiful, unique and totally natural.
Unless a buyer prefers to retain the original or specific appearance on the metal, there is absolutely no maintenance required to allow these tub exteriors to flourish. Should only minimal exterior patination be an owners preference, the surface can be coated with natural beeswax to slow or prevent further patina formation.
These natural color and surface changes can vary in time from slow to quite fast. Most often however, the effects of the oxidization or tarnishing are not visually noticeable on a day to day basis. However, while nothing may be apparent to the naked eye, the patina will be developing. Should some individual markings not be to an owners liking, it is a small task to remove these and allow the finish to resurface.
