WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE EVERYDAY STUFF

THE MOST EXPENSIVE TABLE EVER SOLD

most expensive table was sold for  $4.6 million
The Tufft pier table, named after its creator, Thomas Tufft, was hand-carved in the late 1700s for general store owner Richard Edwards of Lumberton, New Jersey. The antique table features pierced fretwork and long legs ending in narrow ankles and detailed ball-and-claw feet. It was sold by Edwards’ descendent, a Philadelphia architect by the name of Samuel Harrison Gardiner.
The most impressive thing about the world’s most expensive table isn’t its auction sale of $4.6 million, which overshot presale estimate by over $3 million, but the fact that it has retained its position for nearly two decades. The Tufft pier table was sold on January 20th, 1990. Now that’s an enduring work of art!
