Fantasy Christmas Gift for Falconer: $150,000

The Bespoke Global Falconry Companion includes two oiled walnut chairs, a 20-karat gold plated falconry perch and leather perch scale, four hoods with hood stands, two lead crystal beverage decanters, and a backgammon board featuring gold plated brass playing pieces.
