Classic Original Tubs and Baths

1912 L. Wolff “Monarch” Corner tubs
These monsters are made of earthenware.  Keep in mind, the type of tub filler needed 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.

Here it is pictured in a 1910 L. Wolff catalog.  We have both a left hand drain and a right hand drain one available, so we can be flexible in regards to your bathroom plans.  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 these tubs does have some crackle.  The one with the drain on the right is the better of the two, the left hand version does have a fairly long crack running through the drain and filler holes, it does not go completely through the base material.
WolffTubR  Right hand Drain,  $1500.00 reserve
WolffTubL  Left hand drain, crack, $1000.00 reserve

1936 Standard “Pembroke Neo-Classic” Tub
5 1/2’ long, Right hand drain.  Will accept modern waste and overflow.  Somewhere along the way, someone set something acidic in the bottom of the tub and etched one little 3” square spot in the enamel.  Other than that, this tub is in nice shape for it’s age.  There are a few “grain of rice” sized chips scattered throughout the finish and a couple minor rust stains in the bottom of the tub, but that’s it.  These tend not to last long.....  Truck freight only
OBT10201 Standard tub SOLD 


1966 Standard “Cinderella” Cast Iron Bathtub
We rarely see Cinderella tubs, and whenever we do get one, it doesn’t stick around long.  This one’s the nice bright modern white, and is a right hand drain.  It measures 48” wide, and is 49 1/2” front to back.  There is some deglossing on the bottom from frequent cleaning, and three chips.  The large chip might be covered by the surround, it’s on the top left corner, and is visible in the large picture (click on the photo to see it).  The other two are the size of a grain of sand, one’s right above the overflow, and the other is in the middle of the front lip.  Other that these minor issues, it’s a nice tub.  Truck freight only!
OT120600 Cinderella tub SOLD  

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


1927 Standard “Pembroke Neo-Classic” Cast Iron Corner Tub
66” long, and right-hand drain to boot!  Considering that this tub’s 87 years old, it’s in great shape.  It does have a few flaws, they consist of one chip on the front face about the size of a fingernail that does not go through to the cast iron (it’s still white) and a few scuffs on the edges.  The bottom of the tub is still nice and glossy for the most part, there’s a slight bit of deglossing at the drain.  Tub is 66” long by 30 1/8” wide, and will accept modern waste and overflows.  Truck Freight only!
OT1441 Standard Corner tub  SOLD  


1910-ish Standard Narrow rim 5’ Clawfoot Tub
Powdercoat refinished!  While this tub is a conventional 5’ length, it’s the uncommon “narrow rim” tub and it’s only 24” wide on the outside edge.    The tub will accept normal 3 3/8” spread clawfoot tub valves, and will also accept a normal clawfoot waste and overflow.  The interior of the tub is only 21” wide, and will have a water depth of 13”.  The original feet have been painted silver, but can be repainted to match any decor.  Truck freight only!
OT130202 Standard tub SOLD
