    A rare pair of pistols up for auction

    Would you pay $5M for a matched pair of jewelled pistols from which pop out singing birds when you pull the triggers?

    Amazing art work! Gotta put the price tag into perspective.... If you can justify buying an actual Picasso or Dali, or Escher because your pocketbook can handle it, perhaps you would be interested in them...

    Kind of out of perspective. The people who are seriously considering that purchase are not effected by a $5m hit to the bank account. These are the people that dont even bid on their own toys. They pay people to bid for them.

    Well, that's pointless. Throw a handful of dirt in there and see how reliable they are.

    If I was rich then yes I would buy these things. They are so cool and such unique historical pieces.

    I agree on the perspective; if I had so much money that $5M meant as much to me as $500 does now, then I'd probably consider them.
