Re: Questions for Arthur Bolland

Another question please. Can Arthur confirm if they made the 'Wishiwell ' fortune teller we discussed on the forum, and was it a 'one off'?
Amongst other similarities to a Bolland machine, the rotating roll on the Wishiwell lists questions identical to their Pharos machine.

Re: Questions for Arthur Bolland

Re: Questions for Arthur Bolland

How very exciting! Off the top of my head; there are some very obscure and later Clown Head case models that have appeared and I'd like to ask Arthur if these were 'one offs'? Man on the Moon, Old Mill, The Attic The Bloody Tower ( slim cabinet) Frank-n-Stein ( slim cabinet) and I'd love to know if ...

Re: Bryan’s Payramid

I didn't quite say that. Insurance cover for a particular machine such as yours should be pitched higher for the reasons I gave previously. As you can't just go out and buy one off the shelf, the insurance amount needs to be reflect successfully going out and buying another similar machine from anot...

Re: Bryan’s Payramid

Insurance cover for a unique machine where the only chance of replacement is to find the nearest equivalent machine and that requires a suitably high enough amount to persuade another collector who has one to part with it. As Payramids are fairly easy to come by, that isn't an issue, so I guess £2,0...

Re: Laughing policeman

I'd change the laughing soundtrack for something else, as he reminds me more of a miserable 'Blakey' type character from On the Buses rather than happy and jovial What about 'The Laughing Policeman' soundtrack by Charles Penrose, not sure about copyright but the recording is almost 100 years old - ...

It's £400, though.

Re: Laughing policeman

Blakey. OK. Ill have a look for something 👍 Actor Steven Lewis also played 'Smiler' in Last of the Summer Wine, so lots of good phrases from him to pull from there to add to a sound card, along with some background music. Looking at your policeman again, that face would make an even better Blakey w...
