  1. A beautiful piece vetraio. Congrats.
  2. An absolute gem. I'm glad it was found by someone who really appreciates its beauty and craftmanship.
  3. Have a totally awesome 2015 BB!
  4. Phil! Ready for 2015? I'm sorry to know about your father's accordion :( The bright side: now you can buy yourself a nice art deco squeezebox like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HOHNER-OUVERTURE-dia...
  5. Thanks Manikin! This is my first video playing the button accordion, as I am having classes for almost one year now. This project took a lot of work and I am proud of the results. The purple bellows' ...
  6. Nice find! I couldn't find the brand, but this guy had one restored and says it is from the 50's. Check it here: https://www.etsy.com/pt/listing/171413247/1950s-childs-metal-tri-ski-sled-with?r...
  7. Hello guys, hope you all have a great 2015! The old Koch accordion went back from tuning and I posted a video for you to check out how it sounds. Hope you like it :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
  8. Thank you Jewels! I am extremely happy to see this 90 year-old instrument singing again.
  9. Hello Manikin, thank you for the love!
  10. Thanks Jewels for the love!
  11. Thanks for the love trunkman!
  12. Hello guys, hope you all have a great 2015! The old Koch accordion went back from tuning and I posted a video for you to check out how it sounds. Hope you like it :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
  13. Que bom saber sobre seu bisavô...ele viveu no Rio de Janeiro em uma época linda! Espero que um dia tu venhas a conhecer o Brasil. Eu fiz a viagem contrária e me apaixonei por Portugal...de repente tud...
  14. Olá PatSea...sim sou brasileiro...deve ser por isso que a música lhe soa familiar...vi que és de Lisboa, cidade que amo muito! Obrigado por seu comentário e pelo love&like!

  16. You surely deserve it.
  17. Why women can't see beauty on stuff like this? It's a mistery.
  18. Based on glass bottles from the same era, one could never imagine there were companies able to produce such beautiful pieces.
  19. Agustin, I am glad I could help. But we still can't tell who made your bicycle. We know for sure that it was not Simplex. The marks shown on the rear fork relate to the fact that Simplex supplied the ...
  20. If they have most of the electronics still in place and if you bought them REALLY cheap, I think you could clean them and sell them as restoration projects for something around 70 (the philco) to 100 ...
  21. This is beautiful Sean.
  22. And for the news: apparently Simplex supplied also the fork ends...reading Sheldon Brown's article you can find a clue: http://sheldonbrown.com/velos.html#hanger
  23. hmm...this is unusual. Simplex made derailleurs for most of the french (and other countries') bicycle makers but I never heard of a Simplex bike. This lever-shift front derailleur can be found in Peug...
  24. Phil, I am travelling to the South of Brazil on Thursday and will take the Koch's reedblocks with me. I will take them to an accordion repair expert to have them tuned, the valves replaced and rewaxed...
  25. oh wow...pufferfish fetish for the win!
  26. Yes Phil, it pops open like in the real Rolleiflexes, the viewfinder hood flaps have springs on them and are exact copies of the mechanism found in the actual camera. And inside the viewfinder there's...
  27. Very nice piece. I found another one here: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-outdoor-decor/ottawa/iron-pagoda/1000881170?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true In the second and third pictures it is possible to s...
  28. What an incredible find. Congrats.
  29. Hello parapatton, thank you for your comment. I agree with you about the looks of the old gauze. I chose the gauze based in the "remains" of the original one. There were parts of it still glued to the...
  30. Great picture. Congrats.
  31. This dial is common to many 1939 Montgomery Airline Radios. http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/montgomery_93br717a.html http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/montgomery_93br715b.html Maybe an old chassis m...

  33. this is actually a model of one of the Wright brothers' Flyers. The propellers' side is the tail, with its primitive rudder. The nose or front has these horizontal "elevators". Note that the wings als...
  34. Simply gorgeous pieces.
  35. Thanks Manikin for the love!
  36. The side speakers are too cool!
  37. Maybe a masher of some kind?
  38. Thank you for the love Soulportal!
  39. Found at http://www.prestigeelectriccar.com/history-1091-Electric_Shopper_1960 The Electric Shopper Model FG-75 The Electric Car Company of California, Inc. opened at 495 Alamitos Street in ...

  41. great restoration job. well done!
  42. Thanks sarahoff!
  43. It seems to be themed after the Pueblo indians from New Mexico, because of the adobe houses in the background.
  44. Oh the good times when kids were allowed to smoke...
  45. What a great picture!...and pulled by DOGS!
  46. I am affaid this is a copy. The original, titled "Little Dancer of Fourteen Years" has a much more detailed casting. You can check it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Dancer_of_Fourteen_Ye...

  48. Hey Phil! Aren't they cute? The cabinet is a 1940s office piece that I transformed into my kitchen's dishware/glassware cabinet. It was in pretty good condition...too good in fact for what I intended ...
  49. I updated the pictures of this post because I rewired the floodlight towers and wanted to show them to you guys. This is the little corner where they shine their beauty here at my home. One of the tow...
  50. It is a modernist style bust. It reminds me of Victor Brecheret pieces.
