The porcelain toilet John Lennon used between 1969 and 1972 has been sold to a collector at a Liverpool auction for $15,500.
The porcelain lavatory was from the ex-Beatle’s Tittenhurst home in Berkshire, England.
BBC News reports that auction organizer Stephen Bailey said: “It is unbelievable.
We had bids coming in from all over the place but it went to a private overseas buyer.”
The sale took place in The Paul McCartney Auditorium at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
As Gibson.com reported when the auction was announced, the toilet had been given to a builder, John Hancock, and kept in his shed for almost 40 years until his recent death.
Also sold at the auction at The Paul McCartney Auditorium at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts was a mono version of Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins, sold for $4,500, and a harmonica that belonged to Julian Lennon. John gave it to the builder because his son was driving him crazy playing the instrument.
