Well folks,
no peerless sunrises here but something from the dawn of home levers I think - a mixture of the faema baby, gaggia gilda and vesuvio stove top types whose name is unknown, to me at least:

This baby recently stirred some collecting passions as it fetched about $800.

:shock:

Oh my god!


That's a beautiful/horrible art deco accident, cloning of a microscope/thread tapping fixture/espresso machine.

Unbelievable.

Edit- I might add that it even has the appearance of a Brunell hardness tester.

Yeah, I know - now if I could just find that damned ring... :twisted:

Hi All,

Here are a few images of my "Peppina Termomatica", bought two weeks ago on the bay.
I thought it might be of interest since not that many of these can be seen over internet (I couldn't find a single picture, in fact).
I imagine this must be one of the last peppina variations produced by FE-AR before they stopped their business.
Interestingly - and besides the fact it makes the best espresso ever - it exhibits a few particular features (some of them visible on the photos):

- straight lever
- 1000 W
- "on/off" switch (left)
- "cup/steam" switch (right)
- thermostat
- redesigned group (the "roof" of the group is conical, and there is no more group washer but a small rubber bead hold by a spring, the spacers also have disappeared)
- the kettle looks more like "a bulb" and has a rubber collar (decorative)
- removable drip box


Best regards,
missionhb

A Nuova Simonelli:

Not exactly drool-inducing eye candy (or mine), but attractive nonetheless, and for sale at wespresso.com, where I found the pic, for$750 CDN.
Could be a worthy artillery-piece for the LMWDP, but alas, considerable overkill for three shots per day :(
