This is a list of all of the Antiquities that are found in Coldharbour.

ON-icon-furniture-Coldharbour Map.png Name Antique Map of Coldharbour Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
I think we're all in agreement that this is a map of Coldharbour, yes? Take it from someone who knows: Coldharbour is hard to forget.
Reginus Buca
Coldharbour is supposed to emulate Nirn itself, but it always surprises me how innocuous it looks when depicted in a map. Those brave enough to document it did so with little bias, it seems.
Amalien
I can't imagine this map will stay accurate for long. Correct me if I'm wrong, Gabrielle, but I believe Daedric realms change as often as their ruling Prince's mood. Who knows what Coldharbour will look like in centuries to come.

ON-icon-stolen-Contraption.png Name Tormentor's Roller Value 250
Amalien
This is incredible! Dark and horrible, of course, but still incredible! Given the markings, this could have been part of a torture rack within Heart's Grief itself.
Gabrielle Benele
I don't like the look of this. While I agree with Amalien on it being part of a rack, I think it's more likely it came from the Vile Laboratory. The material on the ends mimics Dwarven metal - but it's colder and lighter or something. Daedric simulacra?
Amalien
Oh, you're right! How did I not see that? It's so obvious when you look closely. That mechanism is incredibly sophisticated. In that case, perhaps it belonged to a Xivilai torturer. How exciting!

ON-icon-quest-Daedric Shackles.png Name Inert Daedric Manacles Value 1,000
Gabrielle Benele
Strange. These are magically inert and without mechanical locks, leading me to believe they were ensorceled [sic] shackles. They're also quite fashionable, don't you think? If I had to be imprisoned I wouldn't be too unhappy about these. Any thoughts?
Amalien
Given where this was found, I wonder if we should consider the possibility of this being from the Lightless Oubliette. The blue crystal residue might be a clue! There were no white or gold colored crystals allowed inside the prison.
Verita Numida
While I agree these are from Coldharbour itself, I'm hesitant to jump to conclusions based on mere residue. The Lightless Oubliette was a detention facility for servants of Meridia. Manacles seem too kind a punishment for what goes on in that place.

ON-icon-furniture-Daedric Pillar of Torment.png Name Daedric Pillar of Torment Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
Don't know if we can call this an antiquity. Age doesn't mean anything in Oblivion, and this is definitely Daedric Prince-craft. A display piece of some kind. Or a warning to keep the servants in line.
Verita Numida
This has all the hallmarks of Molag Bal. Torture, exhibitionism, the sharp-edged aesthetic, and so on. I doubt he uses it to motivate by fear. His whole realm of Coldharbour is a manifestation of fear and exploitation. This is something else.
Gabrielle Benele
It may be hard to believe, but this is what passes for art in Coldharbour. Some people insist that lesser Daedra are incapable of creative expression and appreciation for art, but I can definitely imagine a Dremora Kynreeve staring at this for hours.

ON-icon-style material-Dwemer Frame.png Name Ebony-forged Dwarven Limbs Value N/A
Amalien
Four limbs! Four! A quadruped! The shapes indicate a large dog or wolf, perhaps. Oh, but I shouldn't get my hopes up. Knowing my luck, they'll wind up belonging to some ugly, four-legged crab.

ON-icon-stolen-Obsidian Pieces.png Name Shattered Iron Maiden Value 5,000
Gabrielle Benele
Torture devices recovered from Coldharbour aren't unexpected. To find one so well preserved, however, is exciting. But that's not the most astounding part about this piece. It's what's inside that really boggles the mind. (Nothing gruesome, don't worry, Amalien). It seems to be a scrap of regalia, one that would only be found on the uniforms of commanding officers aboard the All Flags Navy. Perhaps one of the captains that was brought into Coldharbour was tortured in this device. Ghastly.

ON-icon-stolen-Plate.png Name Magicka-Imbued Metal Plates Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
These are inert now, but I see evidence of magicka smelted into the metal itself. The scorch marks suggest it was fire magic, or at least a very mild form of it. These marks are from use, not from a singular blast of heat.
Reginus Buca
The shape is a little vague, but these almost seem like the soles of shoes to me. They would be the right length for an Altmer foot, if we're going with the theory that this is Snow Elf in origin. I suppose it could just as easily be cooking utensil.
Amalien
Oh! Maybe the Snow Elves figured out a way to make traversing the snow easier. Metal soles that melt the snow while you walk! Or for recreation? How fun would it be to glide along freshly melted tracks of snow?

ON-icon-stolen-Vest.png Name Sanguine Doublet Value N/A
Reginus Buca
I don't recognize the style of this doublet. Probably a bespoke piece commissioned by a wealthy patron. The suppleness of the leather is beyond exquisite. It doesn't creak when stretching and snaps back elastically. Wearing it is like a warm hug.
Amalien
Touching this dredged up an unpleasant memory I'd hoped never to relive. It reminded me of the work of a Bosmer tanner I met in Valenwood who was a devoted practitioner of the Green Pact. The lifelike feeling makes my skin crawl.
Gabrielle Benele
Amalien's suspicions are correct. I've, unfortunately, had enough experience with evil necromancers to know what Elf leather feels like. This skin isn't technically alive, but it still acts like it. It even seems to heal cuts and abrasions.

ON-icon-furniture-Void-Crystal Anomaly.png Name Void-Crystal Anomaly Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
I've only seen something like this once--an artist's rendering we found in a Worm Cult hideout. It's radiating ... something. I can't really explain it, but I'm detecting a gap in the flow of natural magicka.
Amalien
Fascinating! Makes one wonder how the Antiquarian's Eye managed to find it. It clearly comes from Oblivion. The question is, what part of Oblivion? The connection to Molag Bal seems clear enough, but the shapes resemble crystals from the Spiral Skein.
Gabrielle Benele
Molag Bal practices all sorts of bizarre alchemy in his Vile Laboratory. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if he managed to pry some facet of Mephala's realm into his own. Corrupting the essence of another Prince would be difficult, but not impossible.
