Bathtub Patent- Historic Bathroom Patents Series


In the past 50 years or so, we've become so accustomed to our technology that we hardly even notice it any more. It's hard to believe that some things we take completely for granted are actually relatively recent inventions.

A surprising number of these inventions can be found in your average bathroom. Here's the 1895 patent for a footed bathtub, which simultaneously created a tasteful location for your bathing pleasure, and a convenient place for anything dropped in the bathroom to roll under, thereby becoming completely inaccessible.

This plaque bears the original US Patent Office drawings of the bath tub, along with the technical description of exactly how it works. This would look fantastic in a Craftsman or Rustic-themed room, and would really appeal to engineers, technicians, scientists, inventors or anyone with a sense of history.
