Harrods to Showcase the Ultimate Swarovski Crystal Bath from Catchpole & Rye
Imagine an elegant Catchpole & Rye bath embellished with thousands of Swarovski crystals twinkling and glistening as you luxuriate up to your neck in sumptuous designer bubbles............
Make that dream a reality with a very limited edition Catchpole & Rye Swarovski Crystal bath available to order at Harrods. Bathing was never was so glamorous!
The Crystal Bateau bath which is priced at £150,000 forms part of the ‘Crystal Christmas Inspired by Swarovski’. The bath is a classic Catchpole and Rye production made in their Kent foundry using traditional methods and employing artisanal 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. 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.
This unique collaboration is the first of its kind between Catchpole & Rye and Swarovski. The fruits of our labours can be viewed as part of “The World of Swarovski at Harrods” only at the Bathroom Department on the second floor at the Knightsbridge store from now until Christmas.
In addition to the Crystal Bateau we have also created a bejewelled version of their beautiful ‘Baby Bateau’ bath. By contrast this miniature version is finished with thousands of a single style of crystal creating a consistent glittering effect. Again only for sale only through Harrods at £120,000.
