A. & M.G. Sassoon - (Sugar?) Bowl

No... not this Bowl sold by Sassoon:


This rather strange aluminium bowl... exactly the same size as the bowls sold with
 A.&M.G. Sassoon's Standard & Capuccino models
(See the leaflets here).

NEITHER SPOUT NOR BAKELITE HANDLE


Here are the seller's words:

"This came from a London house clearance and the owner told me that the sugar bowl and the jug were originally used with the coffee maker until the machine broke and was thrown away and the jug and bowl were kept!"


Interesting, isn't it?

Celebration

For all those who let me do this research: THANK YOU!!!

For letting me the privilege & honour to do all this research!!!
So many emotions, so many unforgettable moments of joy with friends!!!

If anyone would have researched the coffee machines and their creators i so much cherish,
i probably wouldn't have undertaken this 8 hours train ride to arrive in this delightful village!!!

So much information there!!!
And lovely people too!!!

And this sunset when i left...
... You can't top that!!!


8 hours to come back to Vienna, looking at all the pictures i took again and over again...


THANK YOU!!!

Lovely.

At the end of this post (here), i am gently asking to be contacted in case one would own an cafetière E.T.N.A. Express.

I received an answer - 2 1/2 years later - with just these lovely little words:

"I have one E.T.N.A. so i thought i would write you an email".

It isn't so complicated, is it?

I welcome the 6th E.T.N.A. express coffee machine known to me!


Look at my 3 E.T.N.A. Express here
The 2 different sizes here

INFORMATION WANTED: Alberto Balossi - Chiavari

Once in a little while, i am getting a bit stuck with my research.

This is why, after trying my best, i give it up.

Well, i do not entirely give up... i leave it up to YOU, who maybe,
hold precious information about this reseller of Giordano Robbiati's coffee machines.

Maybe & that is the most plausible - this has happened twice in the last months - you are a family member looking for information about your ancestor.

Any little helps.


Any family relationship with Giuseppe Balossi?



THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

Chiavari looks like a lovely place.
