Two luxury tubs - the Cuprosa Bateau and Rotundas - handmade from solid copper will be launched by William Holland. Exteriors are coated with a protective lacquer that requires no polishing, while interiors are hand-tinned.
The Cuprosa Bateau bath (priced from £3,899.99) comes in 1,500mm, 1,700mm and 2m lengths and weighs 45kg, against 160kg for an equivalent cast-iron bath. Its deep dimensions allow bathers to wallow in a more upright, comfortable position and its double-ended design is ideal for couples.
The round Rotundas bath, featuring a jet spa system, comes in a 1,600mm diameter and costs £6,499.99 including VAT.
The baths come with a 10-year construction guarantee and a three-year finish guarantee.
