In Fig. 117 is shown a porcelain roll rim bathtub. This is a sanitary article in every manner, as it requires no woodwork about it, and as this bathtub is made entirely of one piece, there is no chance for dirt to lodge in any part of it. This bathtub will last a life-time; once properly set there will be no further expense for repairs. The porcelain bathtub is not without some fault or disadvantage; it is very heavy to handle. It is no easy matter to carry a bathtub of this kind up one or two flights of stairs and land it safely to where it is to be set. It requires the greatest care in handling. In using the porcelain bathtub it has another bad point in being very cold to the touch until it has become entirely warm from the hot water.
