Claw foot tub: Signature, Sunrise or Vintage Tub?

Posted by mtimmer (My Page) on

My wife is in the process of looking for a claw foot tub for our bathroom model. She's found several online that are possibilities, but it's difficult to assess the companies over the internet.

Anyone have experience with either Signature Hardware, Sunrise Speciality or Vintage Tubs? There's a mostly positive thread on Signature, but I'm not seeing much else. FYI, she's looking for a cast iron tub and the associated plumbing hardware.

Thanks,
Michael

I have the Sunrise double slipper. Worth every penny! Beautiful finish and super comfortable. I don't know anything about the other lines you listed, but I am picky and would go with Sunrise again in a heartbeat.

Hi Michael,

I have work with Vintage tub & Bath on a numinous of projects. A few things I like about them is that they will match or beat any prices on Clawfoot tubs and you get 5% off the rest of your order. They also have there own house brand of tubs (Randolph Morris) and sell other premium tubs brands (like Sunrise, Strom & Cheviot).

I prefer Vintage over Signature because the Vintage does not have a restocking fee like Signature and they have been in business for over 20 years.

A + about Sunrise is that there tubs are made in Portugal (Signature's tubs are made in China).

Thank You,
Tony

Another positive vote for Vintage Tub here. Bought a not quite perfect claw foot cast iron several years ago from them and it was practically flawless. Buying a cast iron pedestal for another remodel. They were very helpful with decision making also. Good luck!

I very much appreciate the leads here. I can't say we buy bathtubs enough to have much of a point of view about the best way to go. Thanks all!
