WHAT: Tiffany & Co. Sterling Silver Greenhouse
HOW MUCH: HK$2.41 million
WHY: As Zoolander might ask: “What is this, a greenhouse for ants?” This sterling silver greenhouse from Tiffany & Co.’s Everyday Objects line will pique the interest of miniature enthusiasts.
The greenhouse is 20 inches (50.8cm) wide, 26.75 inches long and 17.75 inches high, making it the perfect centrepiece – and conversation starter. Despite its tiny size, creating it was time consuming. Made of sterling silver, copper and glass, it took four skilled craftsmen nine months to create in Tiffany’s Hollowware shop.
The Everyday Objects collection is known for elevating objects from the mundane to the extraordinary. The line focuses on giving regular home and garden accessories an elegant Tiffany twist, using beautifully crafted sterling silver, enamel and wood to create works of art.
We are not sure what we can fit inside this greenhouse – or whether we are meant to – but when it is this stunning, do we care?
