The Shikara Freestanding Bathtub
A low slung roll-top bath that is defined by a full and wide roll that graduates downward with gentle sloping sides, perfect for sinking into. All supported by an attractive wide and swooping double-skirted plinth. The interior is genuine Vitreous Enamel, an ultra-tough and resistant material. The Shikara is available with or without tap holes to suit your bathing requirements. Just add hot water and enjoy with a good book and a glass of something nice.
The pewter lustre finish offers a stunning metallic depth that brings the character of the cast iron bateau to life. The bath is painted with a black base before applying several top mist coats using a specialist technique to give the bath its reflective shiny finish.
Cast iron baths are excellent heat conductors and retain the water temperature much longer than acrylic bathtubs. Even after the bath has been emptied it will remain warm to the touch.
Extremely strong and durable, and nearly impossible to scratch or dent, a cast iron bath is the definition of a timeless investment piece. Each cast iron bath comes with gentle undulations as a result of the manufacturing process making each bath unique. The interior is genuine Vitreous Enamel, an ultra-tough and resistant material with a shine finish. Please see the handmade characteristics.
Every bath comes with a 5-year manufacturer's guarantee so you can indulge with confidence. Don't forget to add a bath waste kit - refer to specification for details.
Please note, the pewter lustre finish has a 3-4 week lead time.
The Shikara is also available in a bespoke painted finish.
