Classic design: Ashburn bathtub by Drummonds

Drummonds, a designer and manufacturer of luxury bathroom products, including foundry-made and hand-finished solid cast-iron and stone bathtubs, vanities, showers, brassware fixtures and accessories, introduced the Ashburn bathtub.

The small, cast-iron bathtub has ball and claw feet, and is a compact freestanding roll-top based on an 18th-century bateau bath. Measuring 59 inches long, the Ashburn fits smaller spaces. This bathtub design is also offered with a skirted version of the same bathtub, called Tweed.

All of Drummonds’ bathtubs use a traditional process that involves casting the raw metal, shot-blasting and enameling with a dry-frit process. The dry-frit process produces a snow white, durable enamel surface suitable for finishing either as polished, painted, raw or primed. As with all Drummonds’ bathtubs, the Ashburn is made to order with four bespoke finish options: polished, painted, primed for additional painting or raw metal.
