The chair accused killer Luka Magnotta sat in before he was busted at an Internet cafe in Germany last week was put up for auction on eBay.
The Berlin cafe owner reportedly placed the ad and said the chair is an "unbeatable conversation piece."
It garnered 36 bids, the highest at 1,111 euros ($1,430) on the weekend before the site shut it down Sunday.
The accused murderer from Montreal sat in the stained, fabric chair for more than an hour on June 4 watching porn and looking at stories about himself before an employee at the cafe recognized him and alerted police.
"I offer what is, outwardly, an admittedly rather unimpressive office chair, but one that is guaranteed to be an unbeatable 'conversation piece' in your home," the ad read before it was removed.
A source from the cafe told Berlin tabloid BZ that the money raised from the sale was slated to be donated to the family of the victim, Jun Lin, 33.
Police allege Magnotta videotaped himself killing and dismembering Lin, and mailed body parts to political parties in Ottawa as well as two schools in Vancouver.
Magnotta is being held in Berlin until his extradition to Canada.
