Classic Original Tubs and Baths

1912 L. Wolff “Monarch” Corner tub
This monster is made of earthenware.  Keep in mind, the type of tub filler suppplied will not meet current codes, so be sure to see your local building department for a historic variance.  This tub was intended to be “striped”, the inside and rim are glazed, but the center section was left unglazed so a stripe matching the color scheme of the room could be applied.  Weight is +/- 2500 lbs, so have that forklift handy.  We’re supplying the original standing waste and filler, replated in Polished Nickel, so this tub comes ready to install (with the help of a crane).  Click here for an end view showing the drain and filler

wolff tub

Here it is pictured in a 1910 L. Wolff catalog.  Yes, the room will have to be built around this corner tub!
Tub measures 65” long, is 31” deep and stands 21” tall.  The Bathing well is 59” by 24” and has a maximum depth of 19”
Earthenware is prone to shrinkage (it’s basically a form of concrete) so the glaze on the tub does have some crackle.  Also, there’s a few “spiders” from impacts over the years and one chip visible as a black “spot” down near the bottom of the tub.
WolffTubR  Right hand Drain,  $4500.00 reserve

Left Hand L Wolff Earthenware tub
This tub is a mate to the Right hand version above.  Both came from the same mansion built in 1912.  Unfortunately, this tub has a serious flaw.  There’s a crack about 3’ long that runs through both the filler hole, drain hole, and 1/3 of the way up the tub.  Click here for a close up.  This tub is best used as a prop for a museum...  Not supplied with and drain or supply, does weigh +/- 2500 lbs, so be ready to use a forklift.  For dimensions, see above tub.  Make offer!

OBT12106

Child’s Wooden Bathtub
Judging from the style of construction, this tub probably dates to the 1880’s.  Mounted on Hand carved rollers, we got this tub in Wyoming.  The shelf lifts off to help extract uncooperative child.  Measures 25” long, by 17” wide and stands 20” tall.  We’ve not seen another like it!
OBT12106 Tub 725.00 reserve

1945 Art Deco Cast Iron Corner Tub
It does not get more Art Deco than this tub!  Unknown manufacturer, (there’s no name on it) and there’s what we think is a date of “45” on the bottom.  There is one 1/2” chip on the side facing the photographer that does not go down to the Cast iron, and some deglossing of the bottom of the bathing well, but that’s it for condition issues.  This tub is 60 3/4” long by 30 1/2” wide.  It is a left hand drain, and will accept normal waste and overflow assemblies.  Corner tubs never last long ‘round these parts, don’t let it escape!
