While the average dog house would typically cost less than $200, one canine hacienda that’s hitting the auction block this month is expected to bring in between $200,000 and $300,000. And it’s damaged. Christie’s Auction House is selling a doghouse from Costa Rica that was hit by a meteorite in 2019 as part of its “Deep Impact: Martian, Lunar and Other Rare Meteorites” auction. “This is a really exciting auction and opportunity for collectors,” says Christie’s James Hyslop. “Ever since an exhibition in Paris featured a car famously struck by a meteorite, I’ve wanted to bring an object hit by an extraterrestrial object to auction.” The auction is set to run through February 23rd.
Right now, the current bid is only $1,600 with only 7 days left. If you want your chance to bid on this piece of space history, click here!
Unfortunately, the meteorite is not included with the dog house.
Would you spend this kind of money on a damaged doghouse?
