Catchpole And Rye's Swarovski-Encrusted Bathtub Can Be All Yours For $228,000 (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

There are definitely things well worth $200,000 -- a house for instance. Or, for some people, a Swarovski-encrusted bathtub.

The craftsmen at Catchpole and Rye have created the $228,000 "Crystal Bateau," made from cast metal and thousands of crystals. Because really, is there any other way to clean yourself? Sure there is. You can buy their "Baby Bateau" version, which is smaller and only costs $182,000 (now we're talking).
