An unidentified overseas buyer placed the winning bid at the Liverpool auction.  The fixture was removed from the home in Tittenhurst, UK three years after bought Lennon purchased the estate in 1969.  The commode was put up for auction by the son-in-law of the contractor John had gifted the toilet to in 1969.
