I’m Dreaming of a Bling Christmas!…

December 9, 2011

I just had to share this find with you – this is extreme bling for the home owner who already has everything they need (including a huge bank balance)!

The Crystal Bateau Bath from Catchpole and Rye is on display in Harrods &  forms part of their  ‘Crystal Christmas Inspired by Swarovski’  collection.

The bath is manufactured in C & R’s Kent foundry using traditional methods and employing artisan techniques in every part of the process.  Thousands of crystals have been painstakingly applied by hand taking hundreds of hours turning the bath into a real object d’art and resulting in a staggering £150,000 price tag!

The Swarovski crystals are all white, of four different plates and applied in meticulous fashion to emphasise the light refracting properties of the glass and create a truly spectacular sparkling effect.

Catchpole & Rye have also created a bejewelled version of their beautiful ‘Baby Bateau’ bath, finished with thousands of a single style of crystal creating a consistent glittering effect.   Again, this is being offered for sale exclusively at Harrods and carries the slightly cheaper price tag of £120,000.

The Crystal Bateau Bath will be on display in the Bathroom Department (second floor) of Harrods Knightsbridge store from now until Christmas.
