1. Kallista Archeo Copper Bathtub
Made of solid copper, this tub is hand-crafted by the very people who refurbished Lady Liberty’s torch. The Archeo Copper Bathtub including the bath set and handshower from Kallista is the correct answer. Measuring 65″ (L) X 31″ (W) X 30″ (H), the bathtub is 21″ inches deep and weighs 154 pounds. It can hold 71 gallons of water (can bath number of times) and is complemented by an elegant, fluted-shell copper bathtub faucet set with hand shower. The fluted faucet and hand-held shower unit are designed with the same aesthetic quality as the rest of the tub, featuring a finely engraved starfish-on-seashell knob. Archeo, meaning “ancient and beautiful” in Greek, perfectly describes this solid copper bathtub that is hand-crafted by the same coppersmiths who restored the Statue of Liberty’s torch. The Archeo Copper Bathtub along with the bath set and hand shower from Kallista is a complete kit. Albeit there exist few pricey conventional bath tubs but what catches customers here is its tag of being the most expensive bathtub in production.
2. A Badminton Cabinet’s
Price $15.1 million
The Badminton Cabinet happens to be covered in painterly scenes rendered with amazing finesse in chunks of colored stone, a technique known as pietra dura. It measures 12 feet 8 inches tall by 7 feet 8 inches wide and includes a clock with fleurs-de-lis for numbers. The 18th-century Florentine ebony chest, which is inlaid with hard and semiprecious stones, was never about function. Despite the cabinet’s appeal as a work of art, the number of people who would have space to install it is limited, he noted. The piece was commissioned in an era when exquisite decorative objects signified wealth and power, just as paintings and sculptures have since. Beyond the architectural statement of gilded bronze tops and stately legs, the elaborate surface decoration almost defies description. Inlays of brilliantly colored lapis lazuli, amethyst quartz, red and green jasper and other semiprecious stones portray birds flitting among sprays of flowers and ribbons.
