Today I decided to see what the most expensive item for sale on good old eBay was -that referenced Marie Antoinette of course.
For sale is a framed work of art from the 18th century. A painting to commemorate the first hot air balloon flight that crossed the English Channel. This particular piece was presented to Antoinette on 16 June 1785. And now you can own it and have it in your own living room for the low price of $200,000.00. I am sure it hung near the mantle(s) at Versailles for years!
