C'mon, Powerball, get on the stick.
Christie's is putting up some bee-yoo-tiful teaware for auction, but you've got to be a 1 percenter to even think about bidding. Like this drop-dead gorgeous antique tea chest (pictured below), "circa 1790 — inlaid with swags and bell-husks, the cover with an oval patera, kingwood crossbanding and silver handle and escutcheon, the interior
fitted with a pair of lift-out 'D' form caddies with locks." Salivate, drool.
There's also a lot of truly gorgeous, George III-era tea caddies "offered from the collection of a London gentleman."
The auction's live next month in England. But the Publisher's Clearinghouse Prize Patrol isn't due for another go-round till the end of October. Drat.
