The 2010 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is about to hit mailboxes. The catalog, famous for its one-of-a-kind and astronomically priced gifts, is offering a “Dale Chihuly Pool Installation” this year.

The cost to you: $1.5 million.

Neiman Marcus says “the lucky recipient will be able to work with the artist’s studio for a rare inside look at Chihuly’s creative process.”

The 12 foot by 22 foot installation of the Tacoma-born artist’s signature glass art will reside at the bottom of your pool.

There is a catch, however. The price tag doesn’t cover pool design, lighting, shipping, preparation or installation.

Hey, what do you expect for only $1.5 mil?
