Hi,

This is not an advertisement, since I have nothing to do with the sale...

I just saw this "item" on a Danish auction site this evening. Thought it might be of interest...

https://m.lauritz.com/en/auction/bang--olufsen-unik-privat-samling-af-udstyr-fra-1930erne-og-frem/i4904237

It's a collection of B&O items assembled over 8 years by a private collector. It's currently housed in a 300 sq. metre warehouse.

Cheers

The collection was already on the net.

I really wonder who has the space for such a big collection.

Here's another link to the auction with lot's of pictures.

Will be interesting to follow the auction.

I believe i came across his web site a couple of years ago, but did not realize (from the auction pictures) it was so extensive. My favourite B&O piece is the Hyperbo 5 RG Steel, which seems there is only one in existence at Struer?! It would look perfect with my Cassina LC1 chairs :)

There's a few choice bits in there I'd love... JJ for Berg seating set and the Hyperbo 5 being high priority!

The one in Struer is a replica.
- And not a particularly good one.

This is fantastic!

Whenever SWMBO says "Haven't you got enough Bang & Olufsen?" I can show her this!!

....until I saw this, I thought that my B&O collection had got out of hand - however I'm not in the same league as this one!

What a shame the auctioneer isn't listing the items as separate lots (or even small groups of items in individual lots)?

Kind regards, Steve.

Close to 700 units is indeed an impressive collection.

I presume there are not lot of B&O collections of that size around the world. Most of them are likely placed in Denmark because those big old radios and particular radiograms are very difficult to get out of Denmark.

Does somebody know by chance something more about this collection or maybe about previous owner?

Ideal for a spare floor at Struer!

Someone will need a warehouse for this lot, and the tragedy is that apart from possibly a few dozen very rare items, the rest will likely be depreciating whilst their storage costs escalate. I would guess that the buyer will quickly break up the collection for re auction  .... unless of course it's a wealthy Beoworld member with an incurable dose of the virus.

I thought I had a big B&O collection but, there, I am completely flabbergasted ! Who can purchase a so huge collection considering the heavy price and the space to stock it. I agree with you the seller should have made small lots or individual piece for the most rare of them and there are some of them. Amongst numerous seldom items, I noticed an orange Beolit 609 (with though some broken ribs), a white Beocenter 1400 / 1500 and a white Beogram 1000... and a few other. I would have very pleased to add them to my modeste 300 pieces B&O collection. Smile
