The Fontenay-PC-59 59" Cast Iron Chariot Tub
‘The Fontenay-PC-59’ 59" Cast Iron Chariot Clawfoot Tub with a Pure-Metal Polished Pewter Effect Exterior plus Drain
This is an exquisite ‘Fontenay-PC-59’ 59" cast iron Chariot clawfoot bathtub with transitional claw feet for use in both modern and vintage homes.
To create this fabulous polished pewter exterior effect, we bond layer after layer of a metal with very similar qualities and characteristics of pewter, but without the lead inherent in real pewter. Revealing every original mark that each individual cast iron tub is born with, we leave the tub exterior untouched from the mold before applying the metal. The features created present a beautiful ocean of activity, with swells, dips and waves like seen in a stormy sea.
The surface may darken very, very slowly and almost imperceptibly over the years. To protect the surface, we apply four coats of natural bees wax before shipping.
After finishing, we protect it with an application of four coats of natural beeswax. The exterior does not rust, but will darken and deepen very slightly as it ages. If you prefer to maintain the highly polished finish forever, simply use some Mothers polish and apply and remove gently with a fiber cloth.
