A luxury baby cot has hit the shelves with a price tag just shy of £10 million. Dubbed the most expensive cot in the world, the 24-carat gold design is priced at a staggering £9,960,000.

The solid gold crib, named the Dodo Bassinet, takes six months to build. The magnificent ‘crib of golden dreams’ was created by Ximo Talamantes, designer and CEO of Suommo.

The company, which manufactures luxury furniture for babies and children, was established in 2005, after Ximo became a father. Suommo artist and manager Rafael Esmila says: ‘Timeless and contemporary character make every creation a definite trendsetter.’

The solid gold limited edition design is the by far the priciest of the Dodo Bassinet collection, which includes gold, black, silver, white and rose gold designs.

The white edition would set the buyer back £9,960.00 and the Rose Gold £182,600.00 ‘All of our designs are made with impeccable attention to detail,” says Rafael.

‘Our cribs are embellished with the highest quality materials: natural wild silk, together with Pima cotton and gold yarn embroideries. ‘London is one of our most popular markets, but we also receive orders from all over the world.’

The solid gold crib weighs in at 188kg, and is 114cm high. Customers can also choose to have the cot engraved for an additional cost.  A diamond and white gold insignia will cost you £71,380, while a diamond and pure gold embellishment is £68,060.
