Red Striped Beach Tents | Empire Bathing Tents in Red and White Stripes

Around the turn of the 19th Century when wheeled Victorian Bathing Machines became too impractical, Edwardian ladies and gentlemen needed somewhere more portable to change into their elaborate bathing costumes for a dip in the sea.
The solution was in the shape of small striped bathing tents which dismantled easily - all different shapes and sizes were produced with plenty of privacy and curtains at the front to step out of when all corsets had been removed. They were also popular as \'painting tents\' - just large enough for the artist to set up an easel and stool in a shower.
We have reproduced the prettiest of these in red and white stripes with gently sloping sides and a shaped wooden finial on top for outdoor use only as the total height of the pole is much longer than the tent to enable it to be put into the ground.
