The toilet seat from Hitler’s bathroom at his Bavarian retreat is set to go on the auction block — and leave its New Jersey seller flush with cash.
The white wooden former throne to the dictator was taken by a US soldier as the Americans bore down on Berghof, aka “The Eagle’s Nest,’’ in the waning days of World War II, according to liveauctioneers.com, which is peddling the perch.
The evil loon’s loo could fetch up to an estimated $15,000, said the site, which set the opening bid at $5,000.
According to the Maryland auction house in a historical description of the toilet, US Military Policeman Ragnvald Borch was told by his superiors at the retreat at the time to “get what you want” as they took over the home.
Borch grabbed a World War I armored vest on display, two oil paintings — and the toilet, the site said.
“What are you doing with that toilet?” another MP reportedly asked Borch.
Borch quipped back, “Where to you think Hitler put his ass?’’ the auction house says in its descriptive blurb.
Borch arranged to have the toilet shipped back to the US — where it has been on display in the basement of his family’s New Jersey home since and is now being sold by his son, the site said.
“One can scarcely imagine the plotting the tyrant undertook while contemplating the world from atop this perch!” the auction house writes, adding that it has documentation that the toilet was Hitler’s, including photos of Borch at the home at the time and a signed letter from his son attesting to the details.
The auction ends Feb. 8. There were no bids as of Tuesday afternoon.
