Dear Gentle Readers,
As you are all aware, we try to answer every email we can. When we get an interesting question, we post it. Today's question comes from Brenda M:
Good evening Allan
This is a new subject for me. My brother just requested that I do some research on his claw footed bath tub.
The bottom is marked
9 Standard 5 1/2
S.W. 1912 S
June 25 and something that resembles a childs picture of the sun are also on the bottom.
Can you give us some direction on determining a value for this tub?
Brenda, you have an American Standard / Standard Sanitary 5.5' roll rim clawfoot tub that was produced on 25 June 1912. Assuming the tub porcelain is in good condition and all four feet attach properly to the tub, my guess is that it is worth $100 or so. You can find more information on how to appraise your tub and how to sell it here.
