This bring backs fond memories as one like this was one, if not my first Antique purchase many years ago. This tub is a Beatty Brothers from a little Scottish town near us called Fergus. A great piece so that has many uses and folds up for easy transport and storage. A great piece that could display folded quilts, blankets or sweaters. You could also use it in many rooms of the house simply as a display or bench. Like your bedroom, bathroom, hallway or even a covered porch.
