Vintage Modern Bathtubs
Written by: The Bath Works, Inc.
Article A tub design dating back to 1860 France. A true European antique was used as the basis for this modern re-casting. Cast here in the US using a traditional sand casting technique pouring an alloy rather than iron. We cast in an aluminum based alloy which has many advantages over iron; slightly lighter, great thermal properties and it will never rust. The interior has a slow baked enamel coating which is glossy and glassy replicating the original porcelain interior. The St. Lyon tub has unique details that have not been seen since the 19th Century. It has a thin lip rather than the more common rolled rim, the base has an outer protrusion which usually fits ornate feet but also allows us to custom a wooden plinth. We are adding the plinth to our Vintage Modern line, it can be custom made from American Hardwoods, including Ash, Poplar, Mahogany, Cherry, Maple and Walnut all from Sustainable Sources. There are three styles of edge profile; Ogee, Roundover and an Ornate Double. Each plinth (like the tub) is hand made and hand finished to order and can be stained, pickled or grain-matched and clear lacquered. The exterior of each tub can be enameled to virtually any color, Metallic coated or Hand Polished (often referred to as Burnished). The images show the exterior Hand Polished with our #6 Satin Polish. The casting is sanded smooth before being highly polished, it is then finished using a satin buffing pad to create a slightly pitted and grained satin finish rather than a ‘mirror’ or chrome like polish (which would be our #8). The Bathroom for this tub release was created to inspire a very luxurious and feminine room; airy and sun-filled. Yellow and golden accents to bring out the ‘Sunshine’ whilst the modern fixtures set a balance of old and new. We hope to portray an inviting room to bathe and relax. We have been a forerunner of rare and unusual bathtubs since the US based company started in 1998 (US Incorporated in 2001, UK founded in 1981). All our ‘Saint’ tubs are cast to order and hand finished in our Columbia, Tennessee workshops. We offer tubs for clients who want something different, made for them, not mass production copies.
