Exclusive Things the Rich Bought This Year
Most expensive Titanic memorabilia sold in 2012
In April 2012, almost 100 years after the ill-fated ship sank, the first-class passengers' menu of the Titanic's last lunch sold for $122,000 at an auction in London. The multi-course menu featured everything from grilled mutton chops to salmon mayonnaise. The menu came from the table of Titanic passenger Dr. Washington Dodge. Dodge was a banker traveling first class from San Francisco with his wife, Ruth, and son, Washington Jr. Mrs. Dodge slipped the menu into her purse as a souvenir, unaware of how the evening would end. The entire family survived the accident and the menu stayed in the family until it was auctioned at Henry Aldridge and Son.
