1926 Hand-painted Royal Worcester China Set

Here is my rare and exquisite 58-piece Royal Worcester porcelain set, masterfully hand-painted by Ernest Phillips and Paul Stanley in 1926, the pinnacle of the Great Gatsby era. Each individual hand-painted bouquet of flowers is enveloped by an equally elaborate gold Renaissance revival rinceau pattern, fastidiously completed by a different Royal Worcester gold decorating artist.


Here is also a close-up video of this magnificent China:

The Uher Tapes

I'm currently digitizing the audio tapes my dad recorded with his two 1961 Uher 4000 Report-L recorders, one of which is displayed in the photo below. Besides other Uher items I have his second 4000 and Uher Mix-5 mixer, also in perfect working order. I used this equipment many times myself while growing up, even for one of my dad's albums. Of course, in addition to a long family history this Uher also has incredible German engineering, that distinctly warm analog sound, and a built-in speaker second to none!

Akai X-330

Here is a photo of the 1969 4-track Akai X-330 that was used by the infamous Cotacachi band, Rumba Habana (1949-1979), to produce their records. This recorder is now in one of two new rooms that were opened in their honor during an event which I had the privilege of attending today at the Cotacachi museum.
