A special message is also written on the lemon – ‘Given by Mr. P. Lou Franchini to Miss E. Baxter on November 4, 1739’.

When the lemon was put up for auction, it was estimated that its price could range from Rs 4200 to Rs 6000. However, when the auction started, the lemon was sold for Rs 1.47 lakh, while the cupboard was sold for only Rs 3360.
