Antique Copper Bathtub Properties:
Mother Nature has given copper a seemingly magical quality known as a ‘living finish’. This unique characteristic sets copper apart from most other metals and is the primary reason why a pure antique copper bathtub becomes more beautiful with age!
When left untreated, copper interacts with its environment and naturally deepens in color and tone over time. It begins its journey with a pinkish, salmon-like hue and very gradually darkens in color as it passes through a progression of russet browns until it finally stabilizes to a deep, rich tone.
The speed at which it changes color and the final depth of tone for each antique copper bathtub will differ and is greatly influenced by the amount and type of use it receives and by the prevailing weather patterns in your particular geographical location.
The truth is… pure antique copper bathtubs age gracefully and become even more beautiful with every passing day!
Because of copper’s natural composition, cleaning is easy. Simply rinse after each use to rid the surface of any soap or dirt. For a more thorough cleaning, wash occasionally with dish soap and a sponge.
Copper sinks and copper tubs will patina with time and normal use, creating a much sought-after living finish. If you wish to keep your copper fixture in its original condition and prevent the natural aging process, wipe it dry after each use. Apply normal wax at least once every 15-20 days. Our copper sinks and tubs are warranted against manufacturer’s defects for a period of five years. The finishes available are considered living finishes and are not covered under warranty.
