From the Holy Cow Department: A collector in Heidelberg, Germany spent years amassing an impressive collection of Braun-designed objects—radios, phonographs, clocks, speakers, televisions, blenders, coffeemakers, toasters, you name it—made from 1955 to 1985. And s/he is now selling the entire collection off, roughly 1,000 objects, on eBay!
In addition to Dieter-Rams-designed icons like the SK 4 "Phonosuper," s/he's got classics like the SK 1 designed by Artur Braun and Fritz Eichler, the Florian-Seiffert-designed KF 20 Aromamaster, the Herbert-Hirche-designed HF 1 TV set, the list goes on...and on...and on.
The good news is you've still got five days left to get in on this! All you've gotta do is pony up the cash and get your ass to Heidelberg for pickup, about 100 miles north of Stuttgart.
The bad news is, the bidding starts at €350,000. But look, man, that Bauhaus museum you've been meaning to start isn't going to open its damn self.
Hit the jump to see the video that the seller kindly made... to torture us.

ps. Those objects start about 20 years after the Bauhaus shuttered, so maybe a Bauhaus-influenced design museum.
