Described as “the ultimate in “baby bling”, the converted Silver Cross Silver Shadow is dripping in Â£4,000-worth of 24-carat gold, which covers every panel as well as its wheels and spokes.
Its leather hood is trimmed in super-soft ermine fur, it has a blue satin lining – and its base even conceals a clockwork music box which plays soothing nursery rhymes.
The show-stopping pram was created by Graham Richardson and Alison Murfet, who run a pram-restoring business in Holbeach, Lincolnshire.
It was bought around six weeks ago at the famous Knightsbridge store by a South African businessman, who has not been named.
The Silver Cross brand dates back to 1877 and generations have grown up being gently wheeled around in its baby carriages.
In the 1920s, it was crowned the number one manufacturer of baby carriages for Royals after one was supplied to George VI and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
The Queen later chose a Silver Cross pram when Prince Charles was born in 1948. However, his was not covered in gold. The cost of the pram exceeds that of any other baby carriage available in Harrods. Via dailymail
