A tub molded after an antique cast-iron soaker that's easier to install because it's lighter? Love it. Paint or polish its rust-proof aluminum alloy exterior, and order its enamel lining in just about any color. Hand cast in England, this reproduction weighs 100 pounds less than the original—and supposedly costs half the price.
