There is little less true in life than the assertion that if you won a staggering amount of money on the lottery, there would be no way you could spend it all. We’d be happy to help.
The first in our outlandish gift ideas section is a pencil, an object that many of us will now suddenly realise we haven’t used in years. What does a normal pencil cost? I’ve absolutely no idea – but not as much as this…
Billed as “the world’s most exclusive pencil” (“exclusive” is a byword for re-mortgage) the blurb is as follows:
“Paying homage to the cult object of poets and scholars there followed a luxury version of this little gem in 2001 to mark the company’s 240th anniversary. In terms of materials and exclusiveness, the new pencil beat all records. Both extender and the end piece are made of 18-carat white gold. Underneath the count’s coat-of-arms at the cap three diamonds symbolize the third millennium.
The world’s most exclusive pencil is somewhat larger than the standard version, and appeared in a limited edition of only 99 pieces world-wide”
