You know you’re rich when you have $26.7 million to spend on a ceramic bowl.Porcelain, a lunch menu from the Titanic, and a model battleship were some of the most outrageous purchases of April.
Really Expensive Statue
A rare cigar store Indian from the 1800s sold for $94,000 at auction. It was crafted by the renowned Samuel Robb.
The Indian stands at five-feet tall, which sounds a little creepy if you happen to bump into it. Most of the original paint is still on the figure.
Really Expensive Menu
A piece of paper with the offerings of grilled mutton chops and custard pudding is suddenly worth $122,000 when emblazoned with the emblem of the R.M.S. Titanic.
The menu from the last lunch aboard the 'unsinkable' ship sold for just that much in London this month. The menu had belonged to Dr. Washington Dodge's wife, who slipped it into her purse as a souvenir.
The Dodges survived the disaster, and the menu had stayed in the Dodge family until the auction, which was perfectly timed with the 100-year anniversary of the ship's sinking.
The Most Expensive Toy In Britain
The toy was previously in the collection of Ron McCrindell, who used to have his own TV show.
Most Expensive Piece Of Olympic Memorabilia
The cup that was awarded to the first modern-day Olympic marathon winner sold at auction for an astounding $868,000 in London.
Breal's Silver Cup was purchased by Stavros Niarchos Foundation -- which plans to keep it in a museum in Athens.
Super Rare Baseball Card
A New Jersey man purchased a rare baseball card known as the 'Holy Grail' for a little more than $1.2 million.
On the card is shortstop Honus Wagner. The card is part of the 'T206' set released by the American Tobacco Co. between 1909 and 1911. Wagner's card is rare because it went out of circulation after only 200 were released.
The Most Expensive Pink Diamond Sold In the United States
The jewels of the late heiress Huguette Clark sold at auction this month for a total of $18 million. The most expensive piece in the lot, a 9-carat purplish-pink diamond, sold for $14 million to diamond dealer Brett Stettner.
Clark, who lived most of her life under a veil of privacy, had kept her jewels stashed away in a bank vault for decades, and they were only recently unveiled for the auction. Clark died in May 2011 at the age of 104. She had spent the last 20 years of her life in a hospital room, virtually alone.
The Most Expensive Song Dynasty Ceramic
A nine-century old ceramic bowl sold for $26.7 million. The Ruyao bowl set a record for the most expensive Song dynasty ceramic piece.
We're betting the bowl is not dishwasher safe.
The World's Only Ferrari Motorbike
A British collector just sold his Ferrari 900 motorbike, the world's only Ferrari-branded two-wheeler, at an auction in the U.K.
The identity of the buyer is unknown, but the motorcycle was built in tribute to company founder Enzi Ferrari.
A Very Pricey World Series Memento
A 1996 New York Yankees World Series ring once owned by former ballplayer Rey Quinones sold for $15,600 at an auction in Bristol, Conn.
The auction was held at the end of March but the results were only recently publicized.
Quinones had formerly played as a shortstop but held an administrative position with the Yankees in 1996, which entitled him to the ring.
