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

Seriously, it costs more than a (decent) house. Does it come with Ryan Gosling as a bath attendant, or something?

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

The craftsmen at Catchpole and Rye have created the $228,000 "Crystal Bateau," made from cast metal and thousands of crystals. Because really, is there any other way to clean yourself? Sure there is. You can buy their "Baby Bateau" version, which is smaller and only costs $182,000 (now we're talking).

According to their website, the design was created in December of 2011 and is being sold exclusively at Harrods in London. But, a year and a half later, it's still a hot commodity-- because bathing yourself in an over-the-top vessel never gets old -- just ask heiress Tamara Ecclestone.
