When it comes to choosing furniture and fixtures for a bathroom renovation, some people will spare no expense.
Those who want to purchase a toilet that was once used by famous author J.D. Salinger will have to subscribe to the same "the sky's the limit" philosophy if they want to buy it, as it's being auctioned with an asking price of $1 million.
According to the News & Observer, a North Carolina collectibles dealer is auctioning the "Catcher in the Rye" author's toilet on eBay.
While Rick Kohl admits $1 million might be a bit high for the commode, he says the item is worth at least $100,000. He told the newspaper that he will entertain reasonable offers.
The toilet, which was taken from a New Hampshire home that Salinger moved out of in the 1980s, is a simple, white Crane Oxford model manufactured in October 1962. It does not come with a seat or a lid, and it has not been cleaned. However, it does come with a letter of authentication from the home's owner, who purchased it from Salinger.
Perhaps an aspiring writer will bid on the item, hoping that he or she will be inspired while sitting on the toilet that was once used by a literary genius?
