Ripplers: repro & real

Post by Yorkshire Pudding »

I'm sure I've seen at least three reproduction Bryan's Ripplers appear on ebay in the past month alone... could even be four... :!?!: I don't think they're all the same one readvertised but correct me if I'm wrong.

Just curious, but where are they all coming from ???

repro ripplers

Post by coin-op »

They are all definitely different listings. As far as I can figure, the first repro went for around the price you'd maybe expect for an original (if one ever came up!), so then everyone with a repro decided it was a good time to try and get a good price for theirs while the goings good! :O: However, I have heard that an original Rippler may be coming up on ebay, so maybe the last buyer will end up having the last laugh!

I think over 20 of them were made about 10 years ago.

Original Rippler for sale, where are they all ?? Must be one up for sale one of these days, the repros as there was not that many made are going to be worth more than the originals.

You're talking black and white. Collecting is not as simple as that: 'never has been'. The public decide the price, less there are to buy sometimes lifts the price. In my view, trying to buy something before it starts to be worth more money is the key. Wish I had known that in the 70s !!! Antiques, for example china or paintings do come into fashion and out over the years, as for the Rotomint, the German ones made around 1960, they are really well made. I have a couple of those German type of machines myself. There were thousands of mass-produced type machines made. I don't want any more of these now, they are a bit boring, soulless. In my view, a lot of old American or English and French machines are better ....

I'm amazed by these liitle Ripplers, I have one myself (not original) and they are really good repros, better than anything else I have seen out there. Whoever made them made a really good job. If they had made a Reetreva or Payramid as well in limited additions, how much could they have been worth now ???
