I would call that Italian Provincial  and it's not half bad looking IMO!  If it was in my neck of the woods it would already be loaded up in the back of my stationwagon!

Chat / Re: Anyone on here ever Sell consoles?
« on: July 08, 2019, 08:43:49 PM »
I sell about one every 6-9 months it seems. Of course I live in So-Cal and if you make good choices when you buy them they are easy to sell once they have been gussied up.


I actually got this one for free and sold it for $700 after reinvigorating it!  http://vintagehifi.net/index.php?action=multimedia;sa=details;lid=207

Music / Live Organ Music today
« on: June 29, 2019, 12:57:01 AM »
I got to hear a beautiful pipe organ today at my nieces wedding.


We were at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament in NYC.


It was quite a sight to behold as well as hear!

Thanks Gregg.


here are 2 more photo's.... it's all I've got until it gets moved to the house.


I got so darned distracted talking with the seller about his cars, and cars in general that I didn't think to take any more!!


You might be able to make them out in the background.  64 Porsche S, 54(?) Pontiac Star Chief, and 39 Buick Coupe.

No it's not a console (it is however as huge as a CG) but if you are a fan of all things vintage then you may have heard of the Aristocrat 5850 (or Town and Country).
 
Produced by O'Keefe and Merritt from 1951-54 it is estimated that between 700 - 900 of these "Estate" model stoves were built .


Created by taking one of there 40" 6 burner stoves and then adding either a Right or Left "Stack" to create a 57" wide MONSTER!


The stove has a chrome cooktop with 6 burners (with mini simmer burners in the center), 2 Ovens, 2 Broilers, 2 pot storage drawers, a Warming Oven and a "Grillevator" Broiler with an elevator that has 5 settings that raises the broiler in relation to the flame.   


My wife stumbled on this one for Sale on LetGo while looking at toy kitchens for our 2 little girls!!


When she showed it to me I just about fell on the floor as I have only ever seen one other for sale locally in the last 20+ years and it was beat to hell.


We made the drive out to Canyon Country (about an hour) yesterday morning to have a look at it and made a deal to purchase it on the spot!


I will need to arrange a mover as I will NOT be attempting to move this beast on my own.

Those casters look to be a big improvement over the originals.


As far as the particle board goes, if it were me I think I would be inclined to pull off the little angle brace blocks and cut a piece of 1/2" or 5/8" plywood to fit nice and snug... then slather it up real good with glue, clamp it up tight and double up the whole base.

Got no reply to any of my emails so I figure it was probably "sold" shortly after it was posted and they just waited for it to be picked up before killing the listing.


Two things I really like about this set is that it is small, and "space separated". for versatile room placement.

Unfortunately no... I was not able to complete a deal on this system. 


Chris  you can see the long cable for the changer tucked into the cabinet in this photo.

This is only the second one of these that I have seen in the last 5 or 6 years and it's in MUCH nicer shape than the last one!


This is the Stereo portion of the Colorama Ensemble found in the 1961 catalog.


My adult children all live in the Seattle area so I may try to have one of them go and purchase it, and send it to me via Greyhound.

THAT is not a turtle!


Buy whatever cheap grill cloth suits your fancy and some black RIT fabric dye and make it as dark as you like.

That 50/50 mix of Lacquer thinner and Acetone works great on most older furniture finishes, I use it a lot.

COOL!  There is a wired remote hanging off the back in one of the photo's and I had assumed that it was for the record player, not for the TV!
