Umm didn't disappear, just trying to get all this together. Had a small mishap w/ my digital camera, so had to get it fixed, should be done by Thursday and then I will post at least pics of the 1 tap, 2 tap and 4 tap fountains by Friday. Hopefully it will serve till then.

Yes, let's see some photos. Would you consider accepting a "comission" to make one for a café in Chile?

If I am committing a forum sin, please forgive me, but I saw this discussion and had to add that I am currently making 1-4 tap fountains myself. These are 12-18 inches tall, glass (no cap) w/ brass taps, and stone bases (8-14 inches tall) that are hollow w/ caps to store an assortment of related items (Spoons, sugar, matches, etc...) I will attempt to get pictures of each style if anyone is interested. These are made individually by me, so they do tend to vary quite a bit from one to the other. I'm sorry, but when crafting something by hand, consistent appearance can be a tad hard to achieve. I merely make these for friends and acquaintances, but if there is more of a demand, I can create and ship them to others. Also if anyone is in the Greater Philadelphia Region, let me know, see if we can get together for a tasting on the next shipment.

Only Italy's finest Futurists could have invented such a thing ...

For Chevalier from Seattle Underground Tour


Torriani, Eterna 1920's

The "Eterna" an electric machine
built by Torriani, was an intricately
crafted machine with a whistle steam
valve to signal working pressure. Capable
of brewing four shots at one time.

ROBOT!

I've said it before, and I'll doubtless say it again . . .

DANGER, WILL ROBINSON! DANGER!!

Galliano!! Hmmmmm.... Being from NY originally and growing up near a Dago (for you non-Italians, Dago is NOT an insult!!) neighborhood I am, regrettably, familliar with it.

People have asked me what it tastes like and I have only one answer... YELLOW! It literally tastes like you are drinking the color yellow.
'Nuff said!

Hey, that 1890s bent-wire frame has PLASTIC FEETS! (More like 1980s?)

I could make an absinthe fountain out of the Royal Crown Cola bottle (1936 series) that I found in my ductwork!

One question . . . how does one get the ice cubes in?

Galliano.. brings back memories of puking off Harvey Wallbangers on New Year's Eve, 1977.

Ooooh.... I want the vaseline glass (uranium glass) one. That's my other collection obsession/addiction. It looks kind of light a streetlight, though.

This will work too, if you have $600 extra lying around.

I tell you what was really disappointing... being in NYC when the outdoor watering ban was in effect and not getting to see any of the pretty fountains... what a drag!
