Sequins and shiny, glittering crystals are dominating current fashion trends since winter. Catchpole & Rye has taken a shine to the next level with its designed shiny Swarovski crystal bathtub. It’s been named “the Crystal Bateau” and can be ordered at Harrods. Made at their Kent foundry, the Catchpole & Rye production is a classic made by employing traditional methods and artisanal techniques. The crystals are applied to the bathtub by hand, which takes several hours, making this a real object d’art. The 4 different types of all-white crystals are placed carefully to create a truly spectacular sparkling effect. However, if white isn’t your color, the made-to-order tub can be covered in several shades of Swarovski crystal options, including gold, blue and green crystals.
They even offer the chance to personally customize your Crystal Bateau, Catchpole & Rye will provide your name spell out or even create crests and logos in the color of your choice. This cast metal and enamel interior glamorous accessory has claw footed legs applies the crystals using the end of a pencil covered in Bluetac!
