Last month Christie’s auctioned off a matching pair of “mirror-image gold, enamel, agate, pearl and diamond-set singing bird pistols”. The “pistols” are incredible. They were made by the Frères Rochat in the 1820s for the Chinese market and had an estimated auction price was $2.5 – $5 million. They sold for over $5,866,499! No description from me will do them justice, watch the video embedded after the jump.
