The most expensive bathtub ever...?

Just had to share this with you.  (We were alerted to it on the Beauty Editor Post blog - a US blog that mostly looks at salon treatments and spas - by Victoria Health's Gill Sinclair, who is probably redesigning her bathroom to accommodate it as we speak...)  The 'shoe' bath is created from a mosaic tiny glass tiles, less than a tenth-of-an-inch each in size, by a firm called Massimilliano Della Monaca. Gimmicky?  Sure.  Over-the-top?  Absolutely.  But it also looks pretty comfortable - and if any footballer's wives are out there (oh, and Gill), it'll set you back somewhere between $17,000 to $27,000, depending on the materials chosen.  View, alas, not included.
