Tub Package 60-inch Clawfoot Bathtub with British Telephone Bath Tub Faucet
The tub is not installed yet since, as the instructions urge, I did not want to rough-in the plumbing and relocate the drain until the tub was on-site, and we are having a new floor installed. But, it looks great so far. It was delivered as scheduled and in perfect condition being very well packaged/protected. I am happy that we ultimately chose to get a real cast-iron tub even though it is much heavier than the acrylic. It took 3 professional movers to bring the tub up one flight of interior stairs safely and without damage to the tub or to the wooden stairs or railing. But I think it was worth the extra cost in order to have real cast-iron. This tub will out-last the house! The installation of the feet was easy, exactly like the video instructions. The finish and the quality of the real cast-iron tub is perfect. In order to get the dimensions for the plumbing exactly right, I partially assembled (just finger-tight) the faucet, feeds and drain, so I got to inspect each piece very closely. They are all very sturdily made, precise and with a nice satin nickle finish...very high quality.

Wow, great tub!
This tub exceeded our expectations. Delivery took a bit of time due to some out of stock parts but we weren't in a hurry. The freight guy was friendly and very helpful. Allowed us to inspect the crate before he left.
Glad we went with the cast iron - the feel is very substantial and it's supposed to retain heat better than the acrylic. Just feel sorry for the guys who had to haul it in.
The fixtures seem high quality to us and the plumber said they were easy to install. He also liked the tub. He was very surprised at the price.
The only issue we had is that we were missing one of the bolts that holds the foot on to the tub. One call to vintage and the bolt was shipped out next day air. My husband was able to put the last foot on very easily.
I thought the tub might be too feminine for my husband but I think he likes it even more than I do : ).
Very very happy with our purchase.

Clawfoot Cast Iron Tub
We decided to go with a cast iron tub in lieu of the fiberglass ones and couldn't be happier with the decision. The tub is the center piece of our newly remodeled master bath. Highly recommend this type of tub for new or renovations.

60 in claw foot tub
Packed well and crated, excellent quality tub and the hardware matched perfectly. Extremely satisfied with this product.
I will order another one for my next bathroom redo.

We were disappointed that the feet were almost black, rather than antique bronze, but we painted them and they matched the fixtures nicely. The instructions left a bit to be desired, too, but, the end product is beautiful! UPS Freight even rolled it right into the garage of the 18-wheeler.

We purchased this #25 tub. A bit hard to get 330lbs upstairs, but worth it. It is a high quality tub and faucet system that compliments any bathroom. And very comfortable! 5ft doesn't sound very long, but it is perfect. We have moved to different city, and now are going to order another one and this time put it in our bedroom! Get one!

Gorgeous tub for historic home
I purchased this tub set as part of a complete remodel of a historic home (c. 1900). I could not be happier with the quality (the plumber even commented on the quality of the faucet set) and the price. We had to contend with uneven floors in the home but the plumber was (somehow) able to level the tub so that it is solid and does not wobble. I've attached a photo so you can see for yourselves how it looks.
