Re: Bulstrodes sale

I was one of the interested parties on this game. I just love these 2player arcades and have never seen this one. It appears that there is a knob to turn the players or maybe just the goalie. Does anyone know who made this and what the functions are? An American fan wants to know !PUZZLED! !!CHEERS!!

Re: Morphy Coin Op Sale Jan 30-31 2016

Hi,

Can anyone shed some light on the LA CHASSE A COURRE (The Hunt) arcade game that was in this auction? I've only seen pictures and wanted to know more about it.

Cheers

Laughing Sailor but who's the maker?

I recently found this Laughing Sailor but I'm not sure how to tell who the maker is. I apologize for the poor pictures as I have not taken ownership yet. It looks like a Modern Enterprises machine but there seems to be a lot of re-creations out there. Thanks.

Re: Palmistry Palm Reading Fortune Teller

The style is definitely consistent with Ahren's, but the light up deco frame suggests a later distributor/operator conversion.

Re: Charlie and Mabel in the Park

I will post more pictures as soon as I take possession. Although I haven't seen it in action, I'm told Charlie uses his cane to lift up Mabel's dress and then she turns to slap him across the face.

So, is the assumption these were made by Bolland?

Re: Charles Ahrens The FireFighters Working Model

I was being sincere. I share the same passion for the Working Models. I was at the VCA Auction to witness the William Harrah collection and I was amazed to see the Burglar Model command such a high price. I prefer the Execution type models but all of them are appreciated.

Re: Charles Ahrens The FireFighters Working Model

Thank you Mr. Moonriver,

Your vast knowledge of Working Models is greatly appreciated !WORSHIPFULL! . I have seen a video of the Bellringers (I'm in love), but I haven't seen a Firefighers nor do I know what movements they have.
