Telvanni Paintings and Velothi Triptychs

These are probably the rarest furnishings in the game. Have you ever found one? And if so, how did you get it?

My understanding is that they can be found in treasure chests, thieves troves, and safeboxes, in the Vvardenfell zone only. Have any of you gotten one from a different type of container, or from pickpocketing? I also heard there was a problem with laundering the stolen paintings, has that been fixed?

    Thanks for the insight. I’ve opened hundreds of those safeboxes, nothing good yet. I’ll certainly keep trying!

    I found a small Telvanni painting in a master chest in Vvardenfell a few days ago. But they must be really rare, I farmed chests when Morrowind was just released and can't remember finding any of them.

    Yeah, have found a couple of Telvanni ones (in Morrowind), as I used to steal a lot to get gold for houses and plans/furnishings.

    Have never found a Triptych, though.

    Kind of on topic but I'd say Spool of Red Thread is far rarer; possibly the actual rarest housing item in the game. It's the one I see in the least homes; but that could be because those paintings are in the crown furnishing tab as well.

    I've never gotten any of the above though but I've never really tried either.

    I only found one so far, in a chest in the last area of Halls of Fabrication (where you hand in the quest at the end). But I rarely go and find chests in Vvardenfell, so I can't really compare if they're somehow more frequent there or not. Never heard of anyone getting it from HoF before, though. :)

    I don't have any firsthand information about that spool, but it would have to be extremely rare to challenge this furnishing for the title of rarest in game:

    a couple months in and i found a telvanni picture and also the triptych. it was from different chests both in Vvanderfel. unfortunately i sold them, since i was not that into housing at the time. now I would hang them proudly in my gallery.

    I remeber also finding an epic dwarven furnishing recipe, and selling them well under price. because i thought TTC was broken or somthing. Im sure someone was really happy.

    Telvanni Paintings and Velothi Panels (very similar to the Triptychs) are available for purchase with 610 crowns each in the Home Decorator. They are giftable. Given the rate on NA these days they're MUCH cheaper than the ones found in chests.

    True, unless you loot them yourself, obviously.

    If I were to find one of these I'd be ecstatic! But since they are so rare I would be very tempted to sell it. A guildie of mine recently paid 1.5 million gold for a triptych. I could use 1.5 million gold!

    Yes, but the unbridled joy you get when you find something like this is something to cherish. The furnishing in your house reminds you of it every time you see it.

    I’ve never found anything of value in Vvardenfell for years but I keep trying.

    It should be noted that in addition to Telvanni paintings and Velothi tryptiches, there are also Velothi paintings and Velothi tapestries to be found, as well as shrouds. I have found a couple of the Velothi shrouds in Dreloth tomb urns.

    I got two of those Velothi shrouds and a Velothi prayer mat from the same location. Also, about 50 of those small Velothi Caisson, Crypt urns. I don’t know if any of those items are worth anything, though.

    Does your character that gets these know a lot of furnishing recipes?

    I have one character that learns all the furnishing plans I find, and I've discovered that he finds significantly more of those stand alone furnishing items (Velothi shrouds, mats, and urns) than my other characters that I run through the Vvardenfell tombs.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Yeah, I do my furnishing plan farming with my main character which is my grand master crafter and furniture plan collector. I feel like I should get better results with her but lately (six months or so) she’s hardly found anything at all.
