The collection comes via Apple collector Hanspeter Luzi who is a remedial teacher for children with special needs from St. Gallen, Switzerland and who developed several educational games and teaching aids for the special needs of his students which included the use of computers.
Julien’s Auctions, which will host the sale of “The Apples” collection describes Luzi as a historian and advocate of his region of Eastern Switzerland. He doesn’t just collect Apple products, as his collection of vintage sewing machines served as the foundation of the Sammlung Albrecht Mey sewing machine museum in Germany. He moved on from sewing machines to Apple computers and after 25 years of collecting, is now prepared to offer the collection for auction.
