Mosely Folding Bathtub, a Trend Worth Bringing Back?

Mosely Folding Bathtub, a Trend Worth Bringing Back?

As apartments in urban cities get smaller and smaller it leads us to wonder, what items around the house can still be modified for diminutive living. We're all familiar with the Murphy Bed, but what about the Mosely Bath?

The Mosely Folding Bath Tub was manufactured in Chicago, Il. in the mid 1880's. The one pictured here was recently being auctioned off on eBay and included a 10 gallon copper tank that sits in a solid maple cabinet measuring 29-by-25-by-77 inches. Obviously shower stalls are the ultimate space saving bathroom accessory, but stretching out in a tub after a long day's of work can be so relaxing.

If folding tubs were available now, would you consider replacing your stall with a 77 inch fold out tub?
