Rerunning this post — because in the meantime I discovered these are called “Cinderella bathtubs.” Here’s Alice’s, too. There were “Cinderella windows”, too. Stay tuned on that one.
We are getting a clean start hehehe to 2009 with this post showcasing some simply wonderful bathtubs from the postwar period. Oh my gosh, look at this 1947 “neo angle” from American Standard … My dream bathtub, no question. But if I had one of these, there probably wouldn’t be a blog, because I’d never leave it. Read on for more vintage tubs … and 6 photos in all…
Sleeping Bee Alice has a little pink tub in her gorgeous house, of course.
Happy New Year Pam! I’ve attached a photo of my pink little lady’s tub…it’s very cute and quite the conversation piece! 🙂 ….
Best regards, Alice

Do you have a Cinderella bath tub and wonder how, originally, a shower curtain was supposed to work? And what about the shower curtain rod? Today, Carolyn shares hers — original to her new-to-her 1959 bathroom. Oh, what a bathroom — an original-condition 1959 pink bathroom that dreams are made of — fabulous tile work, Cinderella bath tub, gorgeous sink on chrome legs, and an equally gorgeous lowboy toilet — oh my! Carolyn has shared lots of photos — and has some questions for us before she even moves in. Heck yeah there is more →
Cindy wrote to ask: Where to buy pink bathtubs. My answer was not an “easy” one: Salvage. Vintage. That’s where you get color bathtubs. No one makes them new, that I know of. Then, minutes after reading her email, I was going through old photos in my camera, and what did I see: A New Old Stock pink bathtub and toilet from an estate sale in 2012. No. I did not bring this home with me to hoard in one of the many (and now, quite full) recesses of my house. Sigh. Of course, looking back, I wish I had, it’s so pink-alicious. I shudder to think what may have happened to it. I likely took this photo on the last day of the sale and as I recall, there were still no takers.Heck yeah there is more →
Question of the day: If you have only one bathtub in your house, should you make it a deep soaker tub? My two cents: No. Heck yeah there is more →
Is is a shower base? Is it a bath tub? Yes. I went to an estate sale last Thursday. A lovely, rambling mid century colonial-ranch… all picket-fence Americana like… quite sweet. The two bathrooms upstairs were pastel delights — but the real prize was this small bathtub / shower receptor. I have seen these small tubs in old marketing materials, for example, in this 1949 Crane bathroom fixture catalog. But I have seen only one “receptor tub” in the wild. The estate sale manager said it was okay for me to take some photos for the blog, so here we have it — a petite receptor tub, in a rosy pink.
