The $12,182 Dagobert "throne" is in a class of toilets marketed toward high-end bathrooms. The toilet was inspired by King Dagobert I who is depicted as meeting his ministers with his pants inside out by a French nursery rhyme. When the lid of the toilet lifts, a built-in music box plays the nursery rhyme. (Courtesy of Herbeau Creations of America)
