  1. What a find...I know the feeling...this is absolutely beautiful, I went to check the lamps post again, where it is also pictured.
  2. This piece brings me many memories...the Electra was used here in Brazil in flights between Rio and Sao Paulo until 1992(!!!) serving aerial commuters from these two cities in up to 66 flights per day...
  3. American Pickers ruined the market, even here in Brazil.
  4. The Predicta tv set was the first vintage object I wanted to have as soon as I saw it for the first time. Unfortunately I was only a kid at that time and didn't have the (small) ammount of cash the ow...
  5. So...we can conclude that the Pakistanis have strong fingers.
  6. What a great post!
  7. LOL...BB the pic was taken very early in the morning, so I guess she had a busy night, poor thing.
  8. This must be one of the best mysteries in CW til now.
  9. On the species page, at the middle of the page you'll find a subspecies list...there are 41 subspecies, most of them living in the'll have to cope with the little buggers, I guess LOL
  10. BB, here you have the species page At the bottom of this page you'll find the pictures taken by Wikiaves members My picture of the cambacica is here http://en.wi...
  11. "Sugar birds" is fine 'cause they compete with humming birds for food. Here's a ink to my bird photography page on Wiki Aves (Wikibirds):
  12. My lofty apartment looks ghetto style now LOL. Beautiful Phil...very beautiful.

  14. She's gorgeous.
  15. Breathtaking. And knowing how rare it is makes it even more special. Congrats Phil, I can only imagine how happy you are for having the opportunity to own these stunning collection pieces.
  16. The piranha is a must have LOL
  17. Sharpening a pencil properly builds character.
  18. This is so nice.
  19. Simply beautiful. Maybe the material is German silver (alpacca)?
  20. A true gem. The first picture is fabulous.
  21. Searching about "what can be drunk in nine minutes" I found an interesting Jewish fasting rule for the ill and pregnant during the Yom Kippur: a person in these conditions must drink only 40 to 45 gra...
  22. No luck appears to read Salaamah (or ending with "l" or "s") or Salaanah (or Salaanal or Salaanas) but any of these returned any pertinent results on Google. Will keep trying.
  23. I will try again vetraio. Thanks!
  24. Maybe it was shot on a Saturday afternoon, right after payment day, at the most renowned brothel in the region.
  25. Rob, thank you for your help. Calling the German collector is difficult, mostly because he doesn't speak or read English very well (actually he doesn't understand almost any English). Anyway, I though...
  26. Thanks fortapache for the love on the "heat rod".
  27. Gorgeous, gorgeous! Its almost impossible to believe there was a time when these beauties could actually be seen in the streets. Good job Phil & Manikin!
  28. rniederman, would you check this post of mine and give your opinion on the approach I should follow to restore it?
  29. Thanks BB and Sean!
  30. I am also not sure it refers to minim is a volume too small to be compared to the cup's measure marks.
  31. LOUMANAL is absolutely right. It is a St. Christopher's medal. Here's one with the saint depicted in the same position of yours:
  32. Very difficult to read, maybe a picture taken right from the front of the signature. I tried to invert the colors to make it more readable but I guess this angle makes the pic to miss some details.
  33. And there's more...
  34. treasures are there to be found by those with the eyes and the knowledge...what a great piece!
