These illustrious antique bathtubs are offered in an array of stunning finishes, each one unique and skillfully hand finished in our workshops in Kent. From highly polished to aged copper, these distinctive baths are expertly finished in Catchpole and Rye’s own workshops. We provide three standard sizes; 1500mm, 1700mm and 2000mm.
Copper baths are a beautiful tradition reminiscent of a time past when one bathed in front of the fire. Although lightweight, the copper baths are sturdy and made entirely from high gauge copper sheeting which is then moulded into its unique bateau shape.
The antique copper baths are then coated with a baked-on, hard wearing compound which maintains the applied finish, giving these baths an illustrious look. Developed for the aviation industry, the coating is durable and flexible allowing the copper baths to stand up to the rigours of regular use.
Copper baths come in a number of distinct finishes; copper both inside and out, antiqued copper exterior, charcoal black exterior and nickel plated or white enamelled interiors. Browse through the gallery images of our Copper Baths for more inspiration.
