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

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

You can buy their "Baby Bateau" version, which is smaller and only costs $182,000 (now we're talking).
