Seller: grandpaczerniak (1,217) 100%, Location: Cedarville, Ohio, Ships to: US, Item: 252632876577 This offer is for a vintage "IDEAL CO." porcelain SITZ BATH, circa 1927, that is pictured for you; included with the offering is one of the porcelain top "waste" valves (two are shown in the picture). I have not made an effort to clean the bath....it is pictured just as it was taken from the house and purchased at the auction of architectural pieces from the house. We purchased two of these baths along with many other vintage plumbing and lighting pieces and one of the baths was recently delivered to a buyer in Tennessee; I received the following note from him upon delivery of the bath:"Larry,The Sitzbath arrived @ 9 pm and it looks great (& is very weightiest. . . ;o).Thank you again for everything. This entire transaction has been most pleasant sir." Vinegar will do an amazing job cleaning it safely. Sitz baths were often included in the homes of the wealthy families of the 1920's and 30's and served to care for lower abdominal hygiene use,..... including post-partum conditions.This SITZ BATH is from a mansion in Oakwood, Ohio, that is just two houses down the street from the famous Hawthorne Hill Mansion that Orville Wright called home for nearly 35 years (this home is now a museum, opened to the public), The house where the bath was used was purchased about a year ago and the bathrooms have been renovated by the new owner; the house was constructed in 1928. Old light fixtures and other architectural pieces were also offered at the auction that was held to dispose of the items removed in the renovation project. Auctioneers were the Kurtz Auction Company. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a vintage SITZ BATH from one of the finest neighborhoods in the state of Ohio. The bath is 26" wide and 21`" deep. Height in front is 15" and in back 21"; weight is estimated at between 200-250 pounds.. Sitz baths are extremely rare and hard to find.....one was recently offered on eBay with a price of $1600 or B.O. I found another one offered by an online dealer of vintage bathroom fixtures....priced at $1275. The bath is being offered as a pick up a location in Cedarville, Ohio. I do use a blanket shipper who will deliver to any location in the lower 48 states and I will be happy to get a quote from him for you if you will send me your city, state, and zip code. I can also ship by freight, using a reputable truck line... the bath would be shipped on a pallet and a truck with a lift gate would be needed for handling the shipment. The bath is VERY HEAVY, weighing somewhere between 200-250 pounds. If you choose a truck line to arrange delivery to you, I will require proof from you that you have insured the shipment through your homeowners policy or some other form of insurance. I will not ship without this proof of coverage, so don't make the purchase using truck delivery until you are certain you can obtain insurance coverage on the shipment.I will be happy to get a shipping quote for delivery by truck to your location at your expense....just contact me with your address (city, state, and zip code) and I will contact the freight broker I use to get a quote for you. Questions... feel free to contact me through the eBay message system or by phone...my cell is 937-935-9829. Payment is by PayPal and is expected within 24 hours of purchase.
