'The Paris-Whitby-73' 73" Cast Iron French Bateau Tub with Aged Chrome 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.
Product Finish - Aged Chrome
This is our beautiful 73” French Bateau finished in our exclusive Aged Chrome. Aged Chrome offers a slightly worn metal look that adapts perfectly for both vintage and contemporary settings. After preparing the tub exterior surface to accept a specially formulated chrome finish that contains real metal particles we apply four coats of high grade clear lacquer are applied to protect the surface. The result is stunning.
The Aged Chrome exterior is very simple to clean, just a damp soft cloth will remove any marks. The interior of the tub is finished with hand applied high grade 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.
