Jakob Tschuk brought a ventilation grille with him to “Bares für Rares”. The 74-year-old master bricklayer from Eching actually wanted to install it in his winter garden, but never got around to it. That's why he now wants to sell the heavy item in the junk show.
Detlev Kümmel explains how the grid works, which can be used for both warm and cold air and with which you can control the flows. It is made of cast iron, which has one advantage: it does not rust. The expert explains that the disadvantage is that it is brittle - and shows a break, which, however, has been professionally repaired. Tschuk, who carried out the repair himself, is pleased with the praise.
Kümmel dates the time of creation to around 1900. But the seller can specify the time: The ventilation grille comes from a house that was built in 1890-92. Tschuk would like 50 to 60 euros for the old component. The expert clearly goes overboard: “You don’t get these objects every day,” says Kümmel, explaining his estimated price of 150 to 200 euros.
When Tschuk enters the dealer's room with his cast-egg grille, people are initially at a loss as to what it is. “Can you make a Bundt cake out of it?” Lisa Nüdling wants to know. But then the dealers become enthusiastic about the property. Wolfgang Pauritsch starts the bidding with 30 euros, but the auction doesn't really get going. When the seller reminds us of the significantly higher estimated price, there is some movement in the matter: Pauritsch now increases it to 100 euros, which is still not enough for Tschuk. In the end they agreed on 130 euros - for the 130-year-old piece.
Jakob Tschuk is extremely satisfied: he has earned twice as much as he originally wanted. "It couldn't be better."
