The Aether


Born in 1912. 66˝. Reborn in the summer of 2015. 

A 1920 Louisville Works “Standard” 66 inch roll top clawfoot tub.

In Homeric Greek Aether means "pure, fresh air" or clear sky. In literary parlance, aether is the heavenly space above the clouds. What more explanation is required? This hand cut mirrored tub is simultaneously ethereal and crisp like the air itself and the best sort of mercurial in it’s ability to mesh with many different types of decor. Each mosaic piece was carefully hand cut and placed in a mosaic pattern. More than 100 hours were spent by tile artisans to bring you this breathtaking, one-of-a-kind piece. The grout is a light grey. BUYER MAY SELECT CUSTOM COLOR FOR FEET.

CLEANING AND CARE:
Inside: Never use hard, gritty cleansers inside your pristine new tub! Use an extremely gentle cleanser. Never use scratchy sponges. NO STEEL WOOL.

* For best results, wipe down the inside of your tub after each use. 

Outside: Think of cleaning a fine piece of art or a diamond in a setting. Use a gentle chamois to clean mirror and you can shine the mirror up - stay away from fibrous rags that can catch on the edges. Isopropyl alcohol works best but glass cleaner is fine, too. Mirror can fog so use ventilation or crack a window and it will evaporate on it’s own. Don’t rub the steam marks with a towel or your hands! 


NOTABLES:
Some minor pitting of most antique claw feet has occurred and you can see the 'character' through the powder coating.
