Baldi-Harrods continues their love affair with unique $790k crystal bathtub

Baldi, the Italian company renowned for its use of precious materials to create essential home luxuries such as bathtubs, vases, bowls and lamps, have created their masterpiece with the “Rock crystal bathtub.” The astonishing three-person bath was carved out of a single piece of rock crystal found in the Amazonian rainforest. 2.5 meters in diameter, it took six months to carve. This luxurious bathtub is the second to be made from the immense block. The original was shown at Salone del Mobile in 2008 and immediately caught fancy of a Russian magnate, who splurged $858,763 (700,000 Euros) for the tub. But, the company has now created another one especially for the Harrods window, and is by no means a replica of the first. Each is unique, though both were sculpted with diamond cuts and left partially rough to expose the natural beauty of the crystal. This bathtub-cum-bathroom sculpture adorns an ornate price tag of $790,310, slightly cheaper than the first creation.
