Countertop viewer

Postby polaris » Fri Dec 06, 2019 8:57 pm

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin

Good evening all, although I look in most days it’s been some time since I posted having almost given up on the hobby (can only put it down to a mid life crisis). Although wasn’t a big collection most of it went at the time and to say I regret it is probably an understatement :) I’m sure many have been there and moved things on that will be impossible to replace. Anyway can’t dwell on that and now like everyone else am trying to put a few machines together and slowly getting there. My latest addition I require some help with in the form of some photographs that I can use to replace artwork on this countertop viewer. Would be much appreciated if anyone can help and would of course add to resources when complete.

Looks like an Olly Whales viewer. Oddly I was going to post about the below one that sold last week for £1400 or £1750 including commission. :shock: I was trying to work out if it had some super rare pictures in or something......crazy

Anyway may help with artwork. I am sure this will get linked to the thread on these machines.

Many thanks Tom, saw this also on saleroom and like you can’t fathom why so much, can only imagine two people really wanted a viewer. :) Hoping for better image but could hopefully do something with it.

I was recently asked to have a go at one of these. I've posted a couple of versions in Resources. I still have the working file, so if any adjustments are required let me know.

Interesting at the beginning of this thread I noticed Coin-op mention not seen another floor standing version of the Olly Whales viewer, but I think the below version is the one and same type. Been on eBay for a while at £499, came from Bridlington apparently with load of other Allwins etc most sold from a fire damage store. Looks mostly there apart from some card holders, cards and needing a lot of work....so decided not to risk it making an offer.

Yes, definitely the same model. Interesting to see another example as I had wondered if it was a 'one off' due to the fact that a number of the table models have turned up, yet no other floor standing machines. Just a shame that after ten years of waiting the one which has surfaced does not have a top pediment - so still no idea if that part is original and what artwork it ought to feature.
