I just took a break from the woodshop (I'm still on vacation) and thought I'd have a coffee and check out the posts.

Wow! :jumping: Sweet collection!

You've given me a good reference to compare with if (when?) I run onto one for my collection.

Thanks for updating your post.

Very nice indeed.

Regards

Brian

Terry,

I don't want to hijack your thread or get too far off-topic but, I seen this piece on Detlev's last update and thought it was interesting as the screwback is marked "Hansen". Looking at the enamel patterns though, is closely resembles other makers. Do you have any that match? 9-rivets

Thoughts anyone?

Quite an amazing piece! What a shame the additional parts are missing (tughra, date, and even an extra crescent). I do not have anything like that in terms of the appearance of the enamel. I think I have one with 9 rivets which also has these separation lines under the enamel but not quite as pronounced (top left star in the 1st photo of this thread). You need to ask our Turkish friends Demir and Avsar about that. I assume it was sold within seconds? US$301!

Yes, I could only imagine what the price might have been had the piece been complete. He also sold a nice painted version for US $136.

It will be interesting to see if Hansen is the actual maker of the star or just the screw disk.

Tim :cheers:

Oh, PM sent on the other issue.

Hello,

I think this is Godet and the screwback is made by Hansen.

Here is a picture of the reverse of an Godet at home, it has 9 rivet holes with the same pattern. 9 th is behind the pins loop.

Thanks

Hello Demir!

Thank you for confirming that, as I too have pictures saved of pieces with enamel matching Godet and another one that was not marked at all. Still one that I need to get :blush: but, wanted to confirm what I was looking at here.

Tim :beer:

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
