This is incredible, a crystal bathtub for a whooping $790,000 (approx. £530,000). The bathtub is carved from a single enormous block of the purest white rock crystal, quarried in the Amazon region of Brazil. The huge tub, 2 metres in length and 55cm in height was previously shown in Milan at I Saloni in April 2010. The block was discovered in 2006 when Paolo Baldi, father of the company’s current CEO Luca Baldi, learned of the existence of this ten-ton block of flawless crystal and had it extracted and transported to Italy intact.
The one-of-a-kind bathtub will be on show at Harrods in Knightsbridge until the end of July.
