Vintage baby tub with iron stand

I've been wanting one of these for a long time.  A vintage Hungarian baby tub. 


They are just the cutest and so versatile.
Fill them with linens, plants, shells and stuff.


Great for parties just put a cork in fill with ice and
bottled beverages of your choice.

How about an immense shrimp tub?


 It would also work well to give our dirty little dogs
a bath. Now where is that dog shampoo?
Have a great week everyone.

Love the tub - what a fabulous find and in such good condition. Perfect by the bar loaded with ice and bottles and I'd give my dog a bath in it too!

Wow Rita
What a fabulous find... and yes what a sweet and convenient dog bath that would make.. although I think your planter box idea is lovely... Sorry I missed your previous post.. the roses are beautiful...Our 'mum' season is in May.. which coincides with Mothers Day.. and my birthday.. so I invariably end of with mums for gifts...

Have a fabulous week and thanks for your sweet comments.. xxx ciao Julie

I am completely blown away by the list of possibilities! Such a great little tub, I would love to have one just like this. :-))) It reminds me of middle centuries somehow. Not very sure what exactly I would do with it, but certain that it would be something fabulous!:-)

I've always loved those tubs, too...just never had a place or purpose for one. Hope you enjoy yours...it's a beauty!

lol - I've never heard of this before, but you're right, it's perfect for a lot of different things. Maybe the shrimp BEFORE the doggy bath though? :) Take pics whatever you use it for! I want to see!

I have NEVER seen one of these, and I can already see many great uses for this! It is in fabulous condition as well.....ENJOY IT TO THE FULLEST! And, thank you for your dear comments on my writing. As much as I love verbose pieces, sometimes short and sweet but POIGNANT is what I prefer, according to the moment. Peace and love to you, Anita

Elisa and Dusty said...
