The Art of Clawfoot tub faucets
by Tony Martin.

Clawfoot tubs have become a timeless symbol of relaxation and elegance. Although free standing tubs originated a few hundred years ago, the evolution of this style of bathing evolved into what we now know as the Cast Iron Clawfoot tub in the late 19th century, when in 1883 almost simultaneously both the American Sanitary manufacturing Company and Kohler started the enameling process to form a seamless non-porous surface, originally sold as a multi-purpose horse through/ bathtub. After the post World War I construction boom clawfoot tubs became a standard fixture in all new homes, now almost a 100 years later clawfoot tubs have regained popularity, no longer limited to cast iron it has become an affordable option for those who long for the nostalgic décor of yesteryear. We invite you to browse through our large selection of tubs both in Cast Iron and Acrylic and explore the possibility of adding one of these to your bathroom remodeling project. Nothing evokes the feeling of relaxation and luxury as much as a clawfoot tub. We all know every tub needs the right faucet to complement not only its look but functionality. Faucets themselves have evolved somewhat through the years, it’s outward appearance has for the most part remain the unchanged, however with the popularity of new technologies, the inner mechanical parts have caught up to the 21st Century, now available with ceramic cartridge, and finished in the latest, non-tarnishing PVD technology, your clawfoot tub faucets should maintain this elegant tradition for yet another 100 years, with so many different variations your options may be overwhelming. The key to achieving both form and functionality is to match your tubs configuration to the perfect faucet, there are a few factors that come into play, such as wall mounted? or deck mounted?, hole distance, spout projection etc, once you have selected the right tub/faucet combination the next step is to add al the other hardware that makes part of your clawfoot tub ensemble such as stop valves, supply lines, waste and overflow etc.
