We’ve finally gotten the clawfoot shower pan in working order in the downstairs bathroom! It’s a bit tight trying to take pics because the whole room is only a little more than 5×6 (and that’s after previous owners bashed into the pantry next door for extra space). But here are some attempts.
From the top:
The pan is 36″ x 36″ cast iron with replated original feet and drain. It first lived in a mansion in Youngstown, Ohio, according to Don Hooper at Vintage Plumbing Bathroom Antiques, whose expertise, courtesy and fabulous selection of fixtures make me wish I had more bathrooms. Check out this page, where you’ll see our pan (bottom of the page) as I did for the first time.
Of course it’s been 3 years to this point, and we’re still working on building the storage unit (which will feature an ingenious boyfriend-built toilet-paper device) and recreating the woodwork that was ripped off around the window and door. So check back in, oh, 2011.
