1916 Kohler Drop In Bathtub, Cast Iron Tub, 68", Estate Salvage
This beautiful cast iron Kohler tub was salvaged from the Laverock Estate in Pennsylvania. The drop in tub features a roomy 68" length and porcelain enameled finish. The tub basin measures 62" L x 24" W x 16 ½" H, with a 3 ½" flat rim.
The tub was manufactured in 1916 by Kohler.
Details: This tub has a predrilled waste drain hole and a predrilled hole in either the right or left front corner of the flat rim for antique waste-drain pull plumbing (not included).
Condition: This tub is in good condition. The porcelain enamel is in good shape, with some minor scratching and the usual dulling of the heavily worn areas on the bottom of the tub.
History: This tub was salvaged from Laverock Hill Estate in Glenside, Pennsylvania. Here, we salvaged materials from an 1890's mansion that was remodeled in 1915 by architect Charles A. Platt. Prior to renovation, this Georgian mansion was formerly known as "Falcon Hill", or the "Sims Estate". Items from this job are featured on Season 9, Episode 2 of the DIY Network show "Salvage Dawgs".
