Egg on My Face

Now, my first thought upon spotting this at Horchow was, "What the hell are you going to do with an ugly, impractical, egg-shaped end table?"

And then I saw the size. Seven inches tall. Inches.

And then I saw the price. $3500. In case you're frantically trying to find the decimal point in there, stop now. It's at the end. THREE THOUSAND, FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS. For a fucking reproduction. God only knows what the original cost.

A reproduction of the 1901 imperial egg. 24-kt. gold-plated metal finished with hand-applied guilloche enamel, faux pearls, and Austrian crystals. 4.5"Dia. x 7"T with stand. $3500

I own several from the Joan Rivers collection, as seen on QVC.

Horchow is now owned by Neiman Marcus, thus the need to reproduce things (in gold plate) that didn't need to exist in the first place.
