What's this?

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

This machine has cropped up on fleaBay over the weekend. Does anyone know what it is? There's no name on it and the only marking I can see is a part number stamp on the bracket for the pull handle (painted over badly...) Looks a bit Heath Robinson? :!?!: No intentions of buying it, just interested what it is - I keep making my learning curve steeper every week!!

They show up as "Viscount", "Duchess" and "Princess" and possibly other regal or non-aristocratic names.

I think they are re-cased Gunter Wulff Beromat type mechanisms with the numbers replace by fruits but I could be wrong.

When the German machines were converted or re-cased they were more likely given names more appealing to the British taste, hence the Roma in your previous thread probably being aimed at the coffee bars of the late 50's early 60's, when milky frothy coffee in a glass cup was about a tanner and a good deal nicer than your high street chain cappuccino of today at £3 and more.

A slightly different machine to the three mentioned, the name that comes to mind is Sterling for this British conversion of the good old German machines..

This is a seriously rare machine and probably worth many thousands of your hard earned cash, so be quick I can see the rush !!ESCAPE!!

The missing bit that apparently broke off will be difficult to replicate .... unless you have a donor machine.

Well this one is a bargain and I thought someone would have hit the buy it now button without looking at the detail given the price, even taking offers....."the King" a few mentioned earlier in this thread a big lump of plastic covering the old beromat worn out brittle junk......

Seems a bargain, only missing the badge, rear, original base, but with lots of extras like a large colony of worm......
