  1. I want one!
  2. Found another screenshot of the original website in December 2007
  3. Couldn't find the company, the website is closed since 2007. I found two pages stored at the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, but there aren't any pictures available. Anyway, there are model names an...
  4. I remember listening to this album for the first time back in 1980 or had a huge effect on me, as it sounded like nothing I've heard before. Nice!
  5. simply love it...these could be on a magazine, great job!
  6. Very beautiful bladerunner22
  7. Thank you bladerunner22.
  8. Thanks Trey, Manikin, vetraio, Caperkid, nicefice and Kydur.
  9. Fortapache, thanks for the love! The blades are originally made of steel. No brass for this poor thing. And the body is almost entirely made of an alloy similar to zamac. Very cheap.
  10. If you decide to replace the blades, there's this company that have used parts for sale:
  11. Apparently it is from the 1920s. Take a look at this video:
  12. I don't know what is happening...I included a link in my comment for you to click and see the pictures.
  13. The base model seems to be this one
  14. I don't believe it does. The general condition doesn't seem to be good. This type of object must be in good original condition or well restored. Anyway, it is a curious object and would make a nice pi...
  15. Probably home made blades.
  16. god I'm cheap.
  17. Manikin Gimme five!
  18. Manikin nailed it. It's a Pinky Lee without his coat.
  19. quinn51, it's a pleasure to be able to help. I would like to add another piece of info: the female figurine in your piece is wearing a veil on her head and this also matches the representations of Ves...
  20. A teddy-panda-bear...that's lovely! And you started really young in this business, I see.
  21. Manikin, just did it.
  22. kyratango, there's this L'Occitane cream that comes in this vintage look jar:,74,1,24546,626219.htm
  23. kyratango...yes I saw it...:´( ....we'll find another one....:)
  24. kyratango...Great find! It was in really good shape, unfortunately it was sold in 2013...I saved the picture, it shows the label pretty well. Thank you! The other items showed in the pictures were als...
  25. bladerunner22 you mean the chalkware display? yes, I found a water based spray paint with a color similar to the one she was painted before restoration. There's this company from Barcelona that makes ...
  26. bladerunner22 I agree, I won't try to hand paint her. Maybe in the future, if I get to know someone with the skills to do it properly using an airbrush and following the style of that bust that Maniki...
  27. Also, there are roman coins that depict the temple of Vesta with the goddess standing inside of it like in this one:
  28. bladerunner22, maybe a not very accurate representation, with all the proper symbols on it, but a stylized one? Can't think of anything else about a building with this shape and a nude girl inside it....
  29. This is a representation of the Roman Temple of Vesta and the girl is a vestal or a priestess of the goddess Vesta. A nice piece.
  30. So cool!
  31. Nice pics Manikin. It's good to know you didn't follow the stereotype. Toys like these are still very common here in Brazil. Shame.
  32. Gorgeous...
  33. I don't believe this statue to be Japanese. The face features don't match the traditional Japanese style. The eyes are too big. The hair also doesn't follow the conventional geisha hairdo, that leaves...
  34. Great find! I once had one like this around, when I was a kid. It was "acquired" by an aunt that went on a cruise. It had a medal in the central circle, with a ship and the company name on it, which I...
  35. Great post as always.
  36. Thank you Efesgirl & Manikin! dr. neon allowed me to add a picture of his piece, what I did now. She's holding...Diadermine and her skin looks fantastic even after all these years! What a great produc...
  37. Finding the origin of this piece inspired me to finish the wooden base. Now she seems happy again.
  38. dr. neon, yes, maybe it was filled with plaster and sanded, then painted over. There's no sign of the brand name.
  39. Manikin, thank you! Isn't the ad perfect? Thanks to you, dr. neon and kyratango, this post now gathers valuable and intersting information. I am still puzzled about mine having no brand name on it. dr...
  40. So this is a French piece as Manikin suspected!
  41. Added kyratango's pic and an ad from the 1930s.
  42. I'm editing this post to register dr. neon and kyratango's find.
  43. kyratango...oh my! this is great! Thank you!
  44. Dr. Neon, you can send the pictures to
  45. Thank you Trey!
  46. Thanks fortapache, recer4four and vetraio50 for the love!
  47. She's so cute! And looks like a resolute girl too. Great find.
  48. You're welcome. I guess hat tracking down the model's name won't be as easy LOL! Anyway, it is a gorgeous portrait.
  49. You can also check this photo, from the school series mentioned in the previous link I sent you. The first picture can be zoomed to show th...
  50. Actually this photo can be attributed to Frank Adams for sure. This is his mark on the corner of the picture frame. You can check it here, page 144:
