I have sat with my fingertips poised on the keyboard of my computer for around three minutes now and still cannot find the words to adequately describe this gift from the fantasy section of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. For $150,000, you can own this unique Bespoke Global Falconry Companion. Don’t worry though, $1,500 will be donated to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation. The description on the NM website is as follows:
“A prime locale has been found, and you and your fellow hunters set up camp. Gazing upon your portable case and matching custom trunk, you marvel at the 20-karat gold-plated perch, hand-carved stands, leather perch scale, and hand-sewn glove, anklet, and exotic-skin hoods by Ken Hooke, the world’s preeminent falconry hood maker. A day in the countryside has never been so luxuriously appointed! Next, the furniture: Chatwin chairs and a foldout table by Richard Wrightman, the foremost designer of bespoke campaign furniture (the King of Jordan is a client). You unfold the beautiful, handmade backgammon board from Alexandra Llewellyn, pour yourself a drink from one of the lead crystal decanters, and select the cigar you’ll enjoy, using your matching cigar cutter by David Linley. The birds are ready, and your gauntlet is in place. Time to hunt!”
I’m not the best at giving gifts, but I can’t imagine this Falcon will be on my list of things to buy.
