And there it is. Probably the most expensive door stop in history, second only to my diamond-encrusted, gold-filled basket of angle’s wings I stole from the Vatican. Obviously.
This bad boy was found propping open the door of a home in Long Island, apparently being passed down generation to generation as an heirloom…doorstop. It was discovered no doubt by discerning eyes who immediately slapped everyone in arms reach, asked ‘why on earth would you use a vase, any vase, as a doorstop in the first place?!’ and brought it to auction.
Where it sold for $1,314,500.
Thank jeebus that family didn’t have a cat in the house. Lord knows it wouldn’t have survived this long.
