A Clawfoot Bathtub is a Freestanding Bathtub has four legs on the bottom which keep the tub elevated. They originated in the west during the late 1800s and are commonly seen in more rich and wealthy environments. Even though they are designed for western style baths, a few Japanese Ofuro's have been shown to have them as well. While they were very prominent in western homes during the late 1800s and early 1900s, they have died down a bit in the west as many older buildings that have once had them have been known to eventually get them removed because of their difficult maintenance and end up being replaced with Built-In Bathtubs. In Japan, they have somewhat risen in popularity in the 21st century, especially in anime culture as they are considered to be cute. Clawfoot Bathtubs also have an altered design known as a Slipper Bathtub where one end is sloped. Some Japanese translations for Clawfoot Bathtub in 足のバスタブ (Bathtub foot), 猫足のバスタブ (Bathtub soundless and stealthy steps), 爪のバスタブ (Bathtub claw) and ネコ足バスタブ (Cat foot bathtub).
