Beatles memorabilia including John Lennon’s toilet to go under the hammer

Toilet humor is something that guarantees a few laughs even if you find it lewd or gross. But if a toilet up for auction demands for a stunningly ridiculous amount, then it certainly not funny. But this is no public toilet, it belongs one of the most popular musicians John “Beatles” Lennon. Apparently, he gave away the porcelain lavatory to his builder John Hancock to be used as a plant pot instead of replacing it at his home. The pot estimated between $1,160 and $1,544 held plants at Mr. Hancock’s home for 40 years before he passed away.

The other items to go under the hammer include a rare mono-sound copy of the Two Virgins duet with Yoko Ono (estimated at $3,860), Lennon’s son Julian’s harmonica (estimated between $1,160 and $1,544), and a black and white autographed picture of a 21-year-old Sir Paul McCartney outside his family home in Liverpool (estimated between $580 and $620)
