The Swale is the latest addition to Drummonds‘ extensive collection of freestanding cast iron baths. Double-ended, the product offers all the comforts of Drummonds’ larger baths, but with the compact dimensions ideal for smaller bathrooms.
The Swale features a narrow rim for an elegant profile, and is available with scroll feet – for a modern aesthetic – or with ball and claw feet. The exterior is finished to order, with options ranging from polished and lacquered metal to cladding in brass or copper, hand painting or specialist hand finishes, including gold metal leaf.
It takes Drummonds several weeks to make a single bath using a traditional process involving casting the raw metal, shot-blasting and enamelling with the lengthy dry-frit process, which gives a snow white, durable enamel surface. The company’s brassware is also precision made, using the lost-wax process. The result is classic bathroomware which withstands the test of time.
