Although Horst Lichter found the compact system from Telefunken “terrifically beautiful” and even described it as a “sensation”, the vintage design object was severely rebuffed in the dealership.
“I think it’s a sensation!”, Lichter enthused and immediately remembered his own, first compact system: “with the great buttons, you felt like Count Koks back then!” In 1970, the parents of the saleswoman Christiane bought the system . “They were certainly nasty proud of it,” commented Lichter.
“And I didn’t until I saw the system at our place!”, the saleswoman also remembered and Lichter became nostalgic again: “Yes, of course, with the 1,000 buttons. You were way ahead of yourself there. It was like the first one down the street that had a color TV. Everyone was astonished: ‘Wow!’”, said Lichter with a transfigured look.
Expert Sven Deutschmanek confirmed the dating, because these systems were only produced by Telefunken until 1972. “Many people who grew up in the 70s and 80s associate the company with TV sets!” The expert was particularly impressed by the hexagonal loudspeakers. “You brought the most beautiful execution!”
“I think the design is extremely beautiful!” Deutschmanek assessed the compact system with amplifier, radio and record player. Unfortunately, there was no cassette player: “Oh, what a pity!” Lights said. According to the expert, the device probably no longer provided “musical listening pleasure” at all, but only served as a design object from the 1970s.
The desired price was 200 euros, but for Deutschmanek “a bit much!” After all, it was a mass product. Only 100 to 150 euros were more realistic. But Christiane and her husband Wolfgang would also sell for this and so they gratefully accepted the dealer card. Lighter’s tip to say goodbye: “Blow the merchants the march!”
But in the dealer room everything turned out differently. Even if dealer Wolfgang Pauritsch initially agreed: “That was definitely a highlight in the 70s!” But there were no significant bids. Thorsden Schlößner then hesitantly offered 50 euros: “I’m going to start very carefully here!” Pauritsch always associated Steve Mandel with music…
But Mandel also kept a low profile: “When the system came out, I was 16 and I’m so glad that time is over!” he admitted. “It’s nothing for me, I don’t really buy anything that has a plug!” Julian Schmitz-Avila also had to “unfortunately join. I’m not there either!”
“That’s a shame!” said the saleswoman sadly when no one wanted to outbid Schlößner’s bid of 50 euros. But then Pauritsch apparently felt sorry: “Even if I will certainly not include this type of system in my range, I will offer you 100 euros!” His colleague Elke Velten seemed a bit irritated.
“And then what do you do with it?” Velten asked, shaking his head. Unfortunately Pauritsch didn’t have a suitable answer ready either: “I don’t know yet!” he said honestly and his colleague started to laugh. For lack of alternatives, the couple finally sold the system to Pauritsch for 100 euros.
When the bid was accepted, the dealer was happy about his new addition. Because “now I have something to give away!” Pauritsch also reminded Pauritsch of the honeycomb shape of the loudspeakers of the TV classic “Dalli Dalli!” with the studio paneling made of hexagons. Apparently another highlight for him from the 1970s …
Another item in the shipment, an order cross of Vytautas the Great, Grand Duke of Lithuania, was sold to dealer Thorsden Schlößner for 400 euros. The heirloom from 1930 had suffered somewhat over the years, but expert Wendela Horz also estimated the collector’s item at 300 to 400 euros. Only 100 euros were requested.
Colmar Schulte-Goltz valued two art prints by Atsushi Shimizu at between 850 and 1,100 euros. The seller asked for 700 euros for the limited pictures (100 pieces) from 1980, which Wolfgang Pauritsch also paid.
750 white gold earrings with rubies from the family estate are dated to the 1950s by Wendela Horz. The desired price was 3,000 euros, Horz estimated at 2,200 to 2,500 euros and Elke Velten paid 2,400 euros.
Sven Deutschmanek estimated a printing press from the 1930s to 1940s at 80 to 100 euros. Only 50 euros were requested. Elke Velten finally got the bid for 100 euros.
A bronze sculpture by the well-known German sculptor Karl-Heinz Krause from 1988 was valued by Colmar Schulte-Goltz at 2,000 to 2,100 euros. After all, according to the E.A. stamp, it was an artist’s copy (Epreuve d’artiste). Desired price was 800 euros, Julian Schmitz-Avila paid 1,600 euros.
