Founded in 2016, we import genuine 19th and early 20th century antique cast iron and copper baths and other sanitary wares from France, and restore them to their original beauty in the UK. Antique French Baths Ltd is the sister company of Vintage France Design Ltd, sharing a passion for elegant French furniture and vintage home décor.
Our mission is to be the leader in bathing barn finds. From the “Empire“ antique cast iron bath to freestanding roll top baths with feet, we find and restore a wide range of antique bath tubs. If you are wanting to incorporate antique décor into your interior design, a vintage bathtub will make a stunning addition to your home.
Antique furniture restoration can be very challenging, and finding the right antique bath tubto restore can be even harder. We work hard at Antique French Baths to do the legwork, uncovering forgotten hidden gems in hard to reach locations. After our careful restoration process, these forgotten French baths transform into beautiful restored antiques that would perfectly compliment any vintage home décor.
Our customers include both interior designers and private clients renovating bathrooms with antique décor. We aim to give all of our customers a hassle-free way of buying a real, authentic antique bathtub instead of a modern reproduction. At Antique French Baths we also find and restore other vintage sanitary items such as washbasins, taps and showers to complete your French style bathroom.
Our France based buyers have over 40 years of experience in architectural salvage and are experts in locating authentic and stylish pieces.
We leave no stone unturned in the hunt for the authentic, beautiful and unusual. In our searches we have salvaged baths from manors houses in Paris and Lyon, country retreats in Brittany, a mountain chalet 2000m up the Col d’Izoard and from fields deep in the Orne and Aveyron. Rest assured every single antique bath tub we sell has a story to tell, from different time periods, locations and designers, each bath is soaked in history.
With each of our restored antiques, we try to keep them as authentic as possible with their original finishings unless the customer prefers otherwise. We work with a team of specialists in antique furniture restoration so that the upmost care is taken with each piece.
