Tin salesman's sample bathtub. The tub measures 10" front to back and 6 1/4" across at its widest point. It is 2 3/8" deep at its shallowest point. The tub has a drain hole and spigot. It is likely the handle on the spigot turned at one time, but it is now frozen. There are traces of green paint and a stripe around the outside of the tub. The inside looks like it has held soapy water at one time in its life as there is a slippery residue built up on the interior closest to the drain hole. I suspect this could be readily removed, but I have chosen not to for fear of damaging the patina. The tub rests on a 6" tall stand. One of the legs is slightly bent and has lost what appears to be a pad. Note the left front leg in the first photo. There are no signs of rust.
