Like most 10X15 master bath floorplans, the bathroom space features a large tiled tub alcove with adjacent recesses for a shower and toilet. The oversized tub area is framed with two marble sinks with brass pipes and faucets. Similarly, ornate crown molding runs the ceiling border and frames the original built-in medicine cabinets.
A 1908 Mott company catalog features a lavish vintage style master bathroom floor plan, which measures 10 feet by 15 feet. The plumbing, as applied to an expensive master bath, does not consist of merely three or four fixtures that bear no relation one to the other — on the contrary, each is selected to produce an artistic interior design of the large space. This bathroom floor plan represents the blending of the practical with the ornate. The three main vitreous solid porcelain fixtures —the toilet, the shower and the bathtub— are recessed.
The drawing of the curtains hanging in front of the stall shower and toilet enclosure converts the bathroom substantially into a dressing room. The bathtub and shower are built into the floor and wall. The dressing table is provided with a manicure bowl. The arrangement and shape of the bathroom fixtures lend themselves especially to a decorative tile design, which is ornate in character and a distinct departure from the conventional bathroom tiling found in master bathrooms.
The bathtub is imperial porcelain, finished outside white with embossed bead touched in gold, combination supply fittings, waste with china handle, and combination shower valves for the shower. The bathtub area is decorated with an offset curtain rod with water-proof curtains. The enclosed shower also has a waterproof shower curtain, offset curtain rod and hooks, soap dish, porcelain receptor, brass strainer and coupling. The sink is imperial porcelain with legs with china ball feet and wall supports. The toilet has an enamel white seat and wood cover plus rod and links with a cut glass pull. The enclosure also features an offset curtain rod and water-proof curtain. This area has an imperial porcelain floor slab.
The master bath is furnished with a white enamel bathroom scale, a basket for soiled towels, and enamel towel rods. On the walls are plate glass toilet shelves with brackets, holder for a bath brush and a sponge holder. The bathroom also features a recessed medicine cabinet, white enameled wood frame with leaded glass door and two adjustable plate glass shelves.
