Expensive Antiques.

An antique (Latin: antiquus; old) is an old collectible item. It is collected or desirable because of its age, rarity, condition, utility, or other unique features. It is an object that represents a previous era in human society. These antiques are NOT your usual flea market items -- Look at the prices these antiques and collectibles sold for!

Olyphant
Price : $17,000,000+
the highest price for a work of art ever sold in Scandinavia!

Possibly the world's most expensive antique... An Olyphant is a hunting - or battle horn made of carved ancient ivory. It was produced during the 11th century A.D. and only six copies with the same ornament group are known to the world.



Chippendale antique secretary
Price : $12,100,000

originally made by the Goddard-Townsend family of cabinet-makers. Estimates are that no more than 7 were ever made. A very similar piece (a Nicholas Brown antique secretary) made around 1760 sold at a Christie's auction
