A Catchpole & Rye brass bath is guaranteed to elevate your interior. Designed and hand-finished in England, our collection of freestanding brass bath tubs are available in a selection of different finishes. We can also customise your brass bathtub with the addition of an emblem or a bespoke plaque, positioned on the plinth or side of the bathtub.
With four external finishes to choose from, in three standard sizes, the Brass Bateau Bath sits comfortably within both traditional and modern bathrooms. Our brass bath tubs are available in standard lengths of 1500mm,1700mm and 2000mm, or we can manufacture bespoke sizes to suit your individual requirements. Visiting one of our London or Kent Showrooms is highly recommended, so you can check which model is most suitable. All of our Brass baths are made to order from the highest quality brass and impeccably finished in our Kent Workshops.
Polished Brass Bath Exterior
The reflective qualities of this striking finish are perfect for bringing a room to life. It is also our most popular brass finish due to its versatility across a range of interior styles.
Brushed Brass Bath Exterior
Matt in appearance, this variation is a subtle way to introduce golden brass tones to a room and also provides a fantastic contrast when paired with polished brass or nickel interior.
Antique Brass Bath Exterior
Presenting as an aged matt effect, this bold finish introduces darker tones than our brushed brass. It’s perfect for those moodier settings and industrial interiors.
Weathered Brass Bath Exterior
A beautifully organic finish, our weathered brass mimics the natural aging process of brass and lends itself to a more rustic setting. Pairing this with a nickel interior really brings the finish to life.
All our brass bath finishes are lacquered as standard, but if you want a living finish that will naturally patina over time we can do this on request. You can also choose to paint the exterior of our Brass Bateau Baths in a colour of your choice to complement either a polished copper or enamel interior.
If you wish to see your brass bath in production, why not arrange an appointment to visit our Workshops in rural Kent. Here you can see firsthand the craftsmanship and attention to detail required to produce a really traditional brass bath.
The simple answer is yes it will unless it is treated. Brass will oxidise quite quickly if exposed to either air or water so if you wish to maintain a high lustre on your brass bath then it is best to have the surface lacquered. This will make it impervious.
This is when the surface of the bath is left untreated and allowed to oxidise naturally. Initially this oxidisation will be uneven but over time you brass bath will attain a leathery brown tone.
Not really. They weigh around 50kgs so two people can easily handle them.
Brass baths are manufactured from brass sheet that is formed into sections - rather like pieces of a suit - and welded together. The entire bath is then polished to achieve a singular uniform finish.
This would not present a problem. We have manufactured baths up to 1000mm wide. We may need to reinforce the base to ensure adequate support. It is all part of the service.
