Two more Hoopers games. The Discotelle in painted case sold today at John Goodwins, and the other one at Collector Connector, last June.

I bought the one from John Goodwin's and having started to strip the paint off the case, it definitely looks like there was something attached to the top at some point. There are two screw holes and the wood is lighter across the front of the top piece, suggesting some sort of pediment.pennymachines wrote: ↑Mon Jul 24, 2017 7:34 pmI wonder if the carved top on the above example has been added later to make it look older/more interesting. It just seems too elaborate and antique for Hoopers. It would be interesting to know if there are any marks on top of yours indicating the placement of a pediment.
