What’s a carefully curated home without a limited edition bar all stocked up with the finest liquors and barware? The late artist and sculptor Francois-Xavier Lalanne created a limited set of only about 8 bronzed hippopotamus bars that exist in the world today.
To get your hands on one of these extraordinary cocktail creations you’ll need to be in the right place at the right time in addition to being able to fork over about $500,000. Titled ‘Hippopotamus Bar‘ this bar even comes in a petite version still valued at over $100K. Created in the early 90′s out of patinated bronze, these amazing hippos are an ultra-rare find.
